Flax-leaved horseweed, according to iNaturalist's identification engine.

Since the idea is to catalog nature, not gardens, I've found myself taking lots of photos of weeds. Some that I know, like dandelions, and a lot that I don't.

Unfortunately, while observations of birds almost instantly attract other users who are ready to fine-tune the ID, people don't seem as interested in identifying plants.

@kelsonv I didn't know about that site! I've found that people are usually pretty ready to help with an ID on the fediverse, and including the tags or helps. Maybe getting people who trawl those tags to use iNat will help

@rubah Maybe! In the meantime, I can start posting more pics here using those tags to at least improve my own observations.
