This a grass, a weed, a plant for harvesting
What is it?

I wish horses ate it because it is all over my horse pasture but they don’t! I have spent many back breaking hours pulling this stuff out.

The mustard is pretty tasty. It also aids in pest control. “weed” is a relative term.

Well said Bill, it is tasty, a host to many beneficial insects and like the dandelion is a herb. A weed is a plant in the wrong place.

Ed and Roxy are correct, it is mustard, very common in first cut and cattle will eat it once it is cut and baled with the grass and alfalfa below. More prevalent in older seedings.

Seems to be spread throughout town, why did it suddenly appear? There are a lot of different noxious weeds if we look around.We can report to RDOS Invasive Species Program but what about weeds in town?Dalmatian Toadflax is rampant and the town is not controlling it as far as I can see.

Yes just curious about what is growing in the fenced area at Road 20 and North of Oliver

I don’t think so – look again. All properties were seeded last fall – possibly fall rye.

I do believe that is Casorso’s lawn.

Wild Mustard, A noxious weed! Believe it or not, there is alfalfa under all that.
Only way to get rid of it is to spray it, (but that will kill the alfalfa) or to cut it. it should be cut before the seeds mature to prevent re-seeding. Weather not so good for making hay right now!
