I have this growing in my yard. I've also got a ton of seedlings that look like it coming up too! I don't think I let it grow & bloom last year but the seeds could have come from a neighbor's yard. Should I let it stay or dig it up?

Do the leaves have a garlicky smell if you squish them? I can't see for sure if the flowers have four petals but I'm wondering if it is garlic mustard.

I knew that looked familiar! Garlic Mustard - Alliaria petiolata

Yikes! I think you are both right! I just looked it up & it is horribly invasive. I'm going to pull this weed up today! Thank You!
