Please look at the picture and tell me what this weed is. It is taking over my garden! I spend hours hoeing. pulling..etc. Only to find it back in few days. Any help will be very appreciated. PS I live in central Wisconsin.

Looks like you're spot on. Thanks. Can I expect this kind of outbreak next year? Are there any chemicals I can treat the soil with in spring to prevent this? THANKS SO MUCH! LOVE THIS GROUP!

It`s an annual need for herbicides....just remove them before they go to seed....
