minty smelling weed

help identify this weed please – smells minty.

This “weed” (still trying to figure out if its useful for something!) pops up all over the place. It smells minty, but the stem looks round to me. It leaves a bit of a sticky residue on my hands after pulling too. I haven’t seen it flower yet, and can’t remember last summer what it looked like.

Where in the United States are you? North Carolina, Colorado, California?
Elevation tells us little as does the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone since both can cover a wide range of growing conditions and soil types. Some plants that will grow quite well in Virginia will not grow in New Mexico.

Sorry, I have my zone & elevation in there automatically because I mostly visit the veggie garden forums.

I’m in NW New Mexico.

Looks somewhat like Thyme. In my garden the Thyme I planted in the herb garden has migrated up closer to the house and grows quite well with the Sedum and Asters. It is a member of the mint family so can smell kind of minty.

Here is a link that might be useful: Thyme

Here’s a pic of it growing. Its kind of hard to see because of all of our other weeds. I noticed some growing and kind of spreading out over a sidewalk, so if this isn’t clear enough, I can get another picture.

Also, if anyone knows what this is, I’d love to know. It grows everywhere, and gets HUGE (5-6′ tall). It pulls up easy and I usually toss it to the chickens.

kimmsr – thanks for the thyme suggestion. That would be quite handy if it is. Before declaring war on “weeds” I’m trying to figure out if its useful. Thyme would be great to add to nesting material in the chicken coop.

I’ve been looking at pictures of thyme and have only found one picture that looked the same. I’m going to run with it though. If anybody knows what type of thyme it is, or has any other ideas I’d love to hear it.

Girl Scout Cookies

Strain Name: Girl Scout Cookies

Genetics: OG X Cherry Pie (Durban Poison X GDP)

Grade: A+

Type: Mostly Sativa Hybrid

Looks: Amazing. Fresh tight nugs, dark green, with the prettiest orange hairs. Super Sparkle.

Smell: Other worldly. Believe that. It does NOT smell like cookies fresh off the oven, more like the box that the cookies come in. It smells somewhat minty, a hint of lemongrass, and it reeks like skunk.

Taste: Waaay different to what it smells, geez. Milky soothing smoke, that hits the lungs crucial. Wow, you get the taste in layers, cherry, lemon grassy, chocolatey, minty, then a refined silky kushy taste on the exhale. Huh…the taste just lingers in the lips for ever…

Effects: The effects are energetic, a superior potent buzz. Mostly in the head.

Potency: Potency, I say in the 20% range, the buzz lasted about 1 1/2 hours, I packed i bowl for me and my friend.

OG Michael Phelps

Strain Name: OG Michael Phelps

Grade: A +

Type: Indica Dominant Hybrid.

Looks: Divine, looks frosty and dry, incredibly dense and chunky; trichomes and orange pistils enveloped the thick green nuggets. A visual masterpiece.

Smell: I took a whiff before I rolled it up. It is amazing. I opened the bag and the entire room was infested with the smell. It’s earthly and has a fruity scent. Also pretty minty, makes my nose hairs curl.

Taste: Again minty, but one of my favorite tastes. Still has that kush taste, however the earth side drowns it out for a rare taste. It felt like a shame having to roll it up, but what can I say?

Effects: A strong high that focuses on the temples and tunnels your vision. Forget about red bull, this fine green will give you those wings to let you glide. Truly one of finest I ever had here in Golden California.

Potency: A perfect 10/10 This is what OG is made for!
