If they are noxious neighbor disturbers I would want to control them as best I can.
Any ideas on a biodegradable way of controlling them if necessary would be appreciated.

Pictures not very good but I would say those white fluffy looking things are Thistles. The yellow looks like sunflower maybe from birdseed. the tall green ones look like they are drying from lack of water maybe Lambs quarters??? Maybe something else.

Pictures not close enough for a positive ID.

Then again....the yellow could be a big dandelion like weed...I am not sure of the name off off the top of my head because of the unopened bud like to the right of the open yellow... and the fluffy seed deals could just be those flowers going to seed rather then thistles. I think its got goat in its name.  BAAAAA!~!    Quills

Could be...could also be Sow Thistle...or Goats Beard. The fluffy seed  formations look too fluffy to me for wild lettuce...but they all make fluffy seed deals...that blow in the winds. I have wild lettuce all over here...darn stuff can take over an area if you don't eradicate enough of it. I also have the sow thistles and lambs-quarters... & going to have more of all of it next year as a lot of it went to seed before I got it cut down. Quills

Pic is far too poor for certainty.  

Left looks to me like a Cotton plant in front of a Sow thistle. Note the brown stem on the Cotton, yet a green stem on the stalk with the yellow flowers. Yellow could be one of the other wild lettuces, though Sow thistle lept out at me from the get go.   

Right looks like a bunch of Ragweed behind another Cotton.  


TapaTalk's editor is as atrocious as its page look is visually abrasive.  :( 
Still, some Paleo is far better than none. Thus we struggle on.

Fuzzy seed heads certainly resembles wild lettuce.  The yellow flower resembles Hairy Hawkweed.  The wilted, multi branched tall weed is probably pig weed or another of the amaranths.

A simple treatment, if needed, is vinegar (10% up to 20%) plus some orange oil and liquid soap mixed in. Use in a hand spray bottle to spray the specific plant or small area. Household vinegar is not sufficient in strength to work. Higher strengths can be found in some garden stores. I agree the taller yellow ones look like goldenrod in bloom

Man with the fire, we are still looking for some better pictures. I guess it is all under snow by now.
