Last year I found a couple patches of field pennycress in the meadow around my house. I pulled them, and hoped that was that. But this year I'm finding many more, in different areas. I don't see it listed on the JeffCo noxious weeds list, but I'm thinking I still need to pull it before it gets totally out of control
Any thoughts or experience with this?
Thanks!

So it's not on the State of Colorado Noxious Weed List, but it's not native and does tend to spread easily :( Keep pulling!!

I have it growing in my gardens and disturbed soil areas but not in my grassy meadows. I do pull it when I see it as pennycress speads very quickly and I would rather not let it go to seed.

Well, pretty much everywhere I pulled it last year it has come back with a vengeance! It's got flowers now, so it's a little harder to find (the seed pods are much more obvious). So I'm back to pulling already... Sigh.
