I recently planted seven fruittrees at my folks' property in northern Kentucky (zone 6b). They are all heirloom cultivars, an Arkansas Black, Fuji, and Grimes Golden apples, Methley & Shiro plums, and two grafted Paw Paws. My growing experience comes mostly from apprenticing on a nursery in New Mexico and I became familiar with the weeds and beneficial plants present in the high desert. Here I am unsure about many of the species I have found sprouting in the circles around the trees where I mulched and seeded with red and white clover. I'd like to know what they are before I start pulling and hope this is the right forum to ask. I've numbered each photo below to make it easier for responses.
Any recommendations on the best field guides or methods to begin identifying these on my own?
Center frame, not the euonymus
This and euonymus dominate the hillside. I'm told this species is invasive and metro parks actively try and eradicate it
I noticed a mistake in my comment nummer 8? = number 7. The cress it reminds me off - is cardamine or bitter cress in English. Looks like that plantfamiliy anyway. The picture does not show enough detail. If it is bitter cress - then it also good for salads.
Number 3 is a woodnettle 4 appears to be a young honeysuckle
5 is wild mustard at the flowering stage, second year growth, and 9 it's also wild mustard in the first year rosette stage.
8i believe is the pilewort https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficaria_verna Also appears to be some common ground ivy growing with it
