I found several of these growing in my peanut patch today. I noticed that they have a couple more leaves than the peanut plants and they have elongated seed pods right now with very unique seeds. Anyone know what this is? @stone?

Yup... I agree

Coffee weed, host plant of the sulfur yellow butterflies...
I like butterfly host plants... And that they improve the soil by adding nitrogen.... Bonus!

I actually had the "coffee weed" ID'd a couple years ago but the never got big enough to grow seed pods.

Funny, i made the remark this morning (before reading this) that there were sooo many sulfer butterflies in the gardens! Now i know why. And i must say that they do have the most interesting seeds...almost like beads.

Thank you, as always Smiling Thank You!
