At tim’s weed patch my mission statement is simple-what’s that weed?I am working on new weeds to identify every chance I get.The city has a plethora of areas to discover and to alot of folks they are just green plants that decorate the various paths we take.Now some are “nicer” to look at than others and they are performer their “role” in helping protect the planet.Here is one I see all over-Shepherardpurse(Capsella bursa-pastoris).It is an annual or winter herb reproducing by seed.It gets it name from the white flowers that produce distinctive wedge-shaped flattish capsules that have their wide end on top.You might have to use your imagination here!Shepherd’s purse life cycle is short and may have several generations of life in a single year.So many weeds so little time.
