Or Sus scrofa domesticus weed? :lol:

Hit it with 2-4-D. That will take care of it.

Probably spiny pigweed. GrazonNext HL will control it, at least here it does.

Or maybe this? I always feel like pigweed has thorns more than "stickers".

is it a grass or broad leaf? if broad leaf what do they look like? color and type of flower? what does "big" mean? stickers...on sharp point coming of stem or a fruit/seed with (how many") sharp things?

In most of the US it's actually a little late to spray for this year. Spray next year and get it good.
