What is this plant? Chicory? And what is going on with this grape?

I'm thinking this is chicory?

The whole vine doesn't look like that though. This is part of the vine.

Also, we have this volunteer. I planted turnips last year. I didn't see any of them go to seed but I found this little guy yesterday.

I'm also showing off a swale. They've been seeded, fyi. I know they look awful. I seeded them last year as well but with an annual seed mix. Bad idea. Anyway, see the wet v. dry areas? The swale is looking very wet and quite wet up the berm as well. Very successful!

Not Chicory. Chicory has blue flowers and less deeply toothed leaves. Looks like dandelion. No idea about the Grapes, but the ones taken by the window look OK. I've seen grape leaves that look like that on healthy plants too. Unless it affects most of the leaves, I probably wouldn't worry about it.

Hi Elle,

The first plant is the serrated leaf dandelion or possibly salsify, both good plants in a clay soil.

Your grapes look like they got cold and the plant decided to pull back into itself a bit. This is perfectly normal. Now that it is warm again, just pull off those leaves and you'll be fine.

I'm all the time singing the same song, it goes like this; mulch, mulch mulch mulch mulch mulch mulch mulch mulch mulch mulchmulch mulchmulchmulchmulch mulch, mulchmulchmulch.

Yeah but I'm in Wyoming. If I mulch it'll blow to Nebraska. Been there, tried that.

The flower belongs to a plant behind it. Not to it.

So I'm now guessing shepherds purse or wintercress. Going to try to eat it.

Sheperd's Purse can look a lot like Dandelion, especially if its leaves are non-typical. There is a way to tell the difference in the non-flowering stage. Dandelion has white milky sap in the stems and leaves while Sheperd's Purse doesn't. Either way, both are edible with no poisonous look-alikes. Bon App├ętit!
