    Are you near farmland? It looks like rapeseed.

    Certainly does look like oil seed rape. They grow like mad along the river bank here and there isn't a farmer in the locality that grows oil seed rape. Shows how far the seeds can travel.

    Yes ... farmer's daughter here ... that's either oil seed rape ... or have you sown radishes or another of the mustard part of the brassica family? ... that's what they look like if you forget they're there and they grow on to flower and seed.

  • Its definitely rapeseed. I live in Kent and most of the fields plant in so the odd bit escapes and plants itself around our village

    Rape seeds are also in many birdseed mixes.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
