Me and my wife decided to get into gardening this year! We started a bunch of seedlings this spring, including pumpkins, zucchini, peppers, herbs, sunflowers, etc.
While checking out a part of our lawn where we would like to put some of these seedlings, we noticed a bunch of plants growing that we have not seen in the last 10 years or so of owning our home. Im wondering any one can help us identify what these are ?
The almost look like asparagus with a distinct black stripes on the stalks! (although I know they are not asparagus).
Thanks for any input!

|I think its Horsetail (Equisetum hyemale). Is the area a little swampy?
