I'm having a hard time telling if this is nipplewort or not, this is the tallest one and what I thought may be easiest to identify. Using several plant identifiers all that comes up is that though. The leaves seem a bit more rounded? In particular the bottom leaves seem most different in growth pattern. I could be wrong though

Hi @RatQueen_Irene - I can't tell from this picture, but here is a very detailed description from Illinois Wildflowers. The thing that may stand out most to you are the tips of the flower petals. Each petal of the flowers of Nipplewort (Lapsana communis) has 5 small "teeth" at the end (see picture attached). If yours do not have these, then I'd say "Nope, not nipplewort". If your flowers do have these, then I would look further at their description of the leaves and the stem, just to be sure. Good luck!
