Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :mad: :mad: :mad: ok I"m done now, I worked on this off and on all evenin tryin to upload to photo bucket, to finally figure out the first picture was wayyyyyy too much resolution. I'd manage to somehow skip reducing one and it just so happened it was the first in the line up so was causin major malfunctions.

That looks like "bitter weed" to me.
If your milk cow eats them the milk will be bitter.
That weed will take over too. Spray it. 2-4-D will kill it.

I dont have milk cows or maybe I should say dairy cows. And since they dont eat it the shreader will take care of them soon. And yes it is bitterweed. We were blessed with a fair amount of rain in late july and august, but holy moly now we've got weeds like we've never had before. Like I've also said before with it bein as hot as it is, I think some of the weeds are keeping what grass there is shaded and not burnin it up by the heat. Before the clutch went capoot in the tractor we'd started shreading. In those places some of the grass is brown brown, but in the places where there's weeds the grass is still green. It's a toss up, weeds or grass. But right now with the heat conditions we've got I think they are helping. Soon as it cools off some and we start getting our fall rains we'll shread and get rid of them.

Calves don't like bitter milk either?
I just have a thing for some weeds, I can't stand em and they got to go. Bitter weed is one of them as is dogfinnel and smart weed. O yeah and pig weed too. I still got em but I am trying to keep em beet back.
I have about gotton rid of the night shade but still have a few of them left.
I have very few bitter weeds left either.

I dont like the weeds either, would much prefer grass, you have to understand our situation tho. We have bottom land, which floods ever time there's a good rain, sometimes up to 10 times or more a year our place is covered with water, up to 1/4 mile or so across where the creek runs. It's really hard controlling weeds in a situation like this. Good aspect is, if so n so up the creek from us fertilizes his pasture n it rains hard, we get the benefits from his $. Downside is, we also get the weed seeds.

this is what it looks like when we get 3 or 4 inches of rain in a short time.
The far tree line you see is the creek. In normal conditions I can drive my lil toyota truck or the jeep across that creek and not get anything but the tires wet.Right now it's completely dry.

Voila! Instant lake! Looks like you could use a flat-bottomed Boston whaler there.
