These have popped up all over one (and only one) of Trish's raised beds. We haven't seen it anywhere else which makes me think Trish might have specifically planted this. Does anyone know what it is?

It looks like Common Peppergrass (Lepidium virginicum.) Smiling

Yep, Peppergrass for sure and probably Lepidium virginicum. There are a few other that grow in that general area of the state, but L. virginicum is by far the most common.

Wow, I can't believe you don't have that all over the place Dave! I've never been anywhere in this entire state where one didn't see Peppergrass & I would have thought the same would be true of Texas.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Virginia Peppergrass (Lepidium virginicum) is what it looks like to me too.

Thanks for the ID, all! I've never seen this plant before and I don't think we have it anywhere except on this one raised bed. Very peculiar!
