    I have these out of order Top pic is again of a possible smart weed.

    Both bottom pictures are possible Arrow Arum seed?

    It does appear to be water pepper (P. hydropiper or P. hydropiperoides in pics 1,3 and 4. Sometimes also called swamp smartweed. It has been many years since I have seen arrow arum seeds but that does appear to be them. That is unusually light colored barnyardgrass but it does look like it for sure in the last two pictures.

    Swamp Smart is a rhizome, if you want to get rid of for God’s sake don’t disc it. It has some value as duck feed but nearly as much as its cousin Pennsylvania Smartweed.
