Chickweed?

oh yeah, supposedly edible, but i've never tried it. :) grows well here, but because it smothers other things out that i'd rather have i try to keep it under some type of control.

it being so invasive imagine someone giving away seed packets of this? well they did, which is how we got it, i thought it would be a nice thing to put in a spot i'd disturbed to fill it in. it did that and then some, and then some more, and then...

I used to think of chickweed as a weed too! I used to throw it in the trash. Then I read it was edible so I tried some. It is SO good on a sandwich in place of lettuce! Especially if you pick it when it's fairly young.
