Monita's Plant #1--Like a Locust Bush?
« on: August 05, 2010, 06:55:22 AM »
I have two plants that are growing in abundance in my garden but cannot find what they are.  I have a good pic of them but have not idea how to post them.  Could someone teach me how to put the picture here for identification?

Thank you! :)

Click "Additional Options" under the reply box...

And opt to Attach a file...click "Browse"

Should work.  :)  If not, there's a post re: picture loading someone...maybe in Tech Support.  OR you can load to a web-based site like Photo Bucket and link it...or if all else fails, e-mail it to someone and we can load it for you.  :)

Look forward to the fun of ID'g!

Reminds me of a weed that I'm always pulling out; some sort of spurge.

This is my plant!  They are all over the place here. I was going to just yank them all out but first wanted to know if it was a useful herb.  
Thank you!

I was looking spurge up and found it is NOT edible.  You all probably know this already but for anyone who doesn't.........

I found this article when I goggled and found it interesting.

Thanks for posting that!!  I've got spurge in my garden, too and now I know what it is!  I've always tossed it out as a weed and thankfully now I know that it truly is one.  I have a few others that I've wondered about and haven't gotten around to IDing yet.  I'll have to get on that one of these days.
