    Any clues on this plant?

    It has long (3") things on it that look kind of like very slender grean beans. (Our goats won't eat this one either. :) )

    Looks like Sicklepod. In the legume family, pea and bean relatives. Grows from Kansas-PA and points south.

    I believe Tweety is correct. Looks like Cassia obtusifolia.

    That's it! Did some checking. Evidently the seeds are toxic but usually only if ingested in large quantities. I love this site! Thank you again. -Nancy
