something new this year. Prominent in my garden but I've not seen it  elsewhere on the property.Starts out small stays that way for a couple weeks then boom it's 2 foot tall. Easy to pull, roots are almost like a tubular before they string out slightly. Has a pleasant smell, my son says similar to free pepper. Any info would be great. Thanks!

Looking at Google I think your on to something. Not exactly but very close.
 
A berm makes a great wind break. And Iwe all like to break wind once in a while. Like this tiny ad:
