These are growing in our early crop High Tunnel, is it crabgrass and nutsedge, we spent a lot of time trying to make it weed free. Thanks, Mark

    This looks like nutsedge. I found some nutsedge about this size on a strip of turf between a side walk and curb last week. The strip had a slight southern slope. I found crabgrass sprouting the week of 3/13. It was just starting a second leaf. The first leaf was about the size of Truman’s nose on a dime. This plant was found on a slight NW slope. I would think a warmer slope might have a larger plant but no where nere what your photos show.
    I am not sure what the top specimen in your shots is.

    Definitely looks like nutsedge, aka “the scourge of my garden”! If anyone has a product that will get rid of this in flower beds without killing everything else – please tell me!
