Q.What is this smelly weed?

Zone Algarve Portugal | omthings added on August 28, 2012 | Answered

I have a new weed that has grown after planting fruit trees last year. It smells horrible, like old fish, and is creeping low over the whole garden. It’s also full of seeds and really smells if you walk on it.

Sounds like you have come across stinkweed, which has many other names as well--like field pennycress. However, in order to know for certain what you have, it would help if you could send in a picture of this plant to questions@gardeningknowhow.com.
