Name That Plant

While checking our fields, I came across this plant.
I checked on it yesterday and the stem has grown so that the head of it is about 18 inches tall.  I've never seen it growing around here before, unless it looks a lot different once it blossoms.  I'll keep checking on it until it blooms and then try and figure out what it is. 

If anyone knows the  identity of this plant, leave me a comment and let me know. I'll send a bar of Glory Farm goat's milk soap to the first person to identify it correctly.

We are in the middle of monsoon season here.  The rain just keeps coming.  I guess it's making up for all of the snow we didn't get this winter.  Just about everything is water logged.
This is just a picture of the wild load of firewood my honey brought home yesterday.
The road heading out to the pasture.


The livestock trailer in the puddles.

The little creek in the pasture has abandoned it's banks.  Can cattle swim?

They don't seem to mind the rain.  It just means more green grass for them.

Have a blessed, dry day.

We seem to be getting the same rain as you. A little too much rain is still better than too little. At least things look lush and green . . . weeds and all! I don't know what your mystery plant is but I'm sure someone will be able to identify it. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

I've been stumped by mystery plants, too. It looks a bit like the type of plantain (plantago major) shown in the link below. Maybe you could ask some neighboring farmers if they know what it is?

Mama Pea and Brenda-Still haven't found the identity of this plant. It's now taller and blooming with some rather ugly little green/white flowers. I'll try to remember to get another picture of it. Time to bring out all of the books.

Our wildflower books are still among the "packed away for remodeling" so I can't even go searching for it for you. How 'bout posting a picture of the ugly little green/white flowers?
