I have these growing in my backyard and have tried to find what they are online but unsuccessful. My yard is near some wetlands/wooded area and I live in Northeast Massachusetts.  If anyone has any idea please let me know, thanks

1) The first 5 pictures are the same plant. It's has a smooth, hollow stem, with red root area.  It grows everywhere in my backyard, and it's very easy to pull out of the ground (the roots come easily up)
2) #6-8 are the same weed
3) #9-12 are the same. They are now growing 4-5 feet tall.

By the way, the jewelweed is an amazing plant, also known as touch me nots (the seed pod can explode when ripe and brushed against). It is known as a northern aloe because it can be especially effective in treating burns.  I have used it on a large burn area, getting one of the larger leaves, and then squeezing juice from the stem onto the  burn , then plastering the leaf on top of it. The leaf dried in place and kept the skin area clean until the next treatment.

It likes wet areas to grow in and the wetter the area you find it in, the more juice will be in the stem and the easier to squeeze it out.

It's also good for sunburn and poison ivy

I use a android app called  Pl@ntNet . Take a picture then it ask if it's a leaf flower or stem.....have identified most the weeds on my property ... most are edible...or have medicinal uses of some sort.... . Like the last find.. sticky Willie or clingers........
Get name ,verify 3 or 4 ways...then ask google... uses for or nutritional properties....Mostly just ends up being rabbit food😁
