Chickweed

Common chickweed (Stellaria media) is a ubiquitous cool season weed native to Europe. It’s also a useful edible, so many folks use it in salad mixes.  It’s almost blooming time for this plant, so we’ll soon be walking around the fields and trying to reduce the chickweed population before it blooms, sets seeds, and banks its seeds in the soil for next year.
