This plant appeared at the end of last garden season. But this year, it is taking over my garden in full force!!! Please let me know what this is and if it is useful or only a weed. If a weed, please inform on how to get rid of it!!!

It is not a plant I have ever seen personally but take a look at Phyllanthus urinaria aka Chamberbitter aka Mimosa Weed and see if it looks like your weed.

Looks a bit big for that, but it's hard to gauge the scale in this pic. Gardennewbie, you can add more pics by replying to this, one pic per reply.

There's no scale in the picture - can you tell us how big it is, or put something in the picture to show scale. I was assuming those were grass blades behind and that therefore the plant was just a couple of inches tall. Is that too big for Chamberbitter?
