Duane, I was wondering what the plants are coming up all over my raised beds. You just ID it for me. Thank you.
I further researched it and found that it is one of the edible wild herbs, and has a mild radish flavor. Suppose to be very good in salads.

Going out to try one. Hurray!

Lynn---this plant is an invasive weed. I hate it. Can't get rid of it, even when I pull them out by hand.

I didn't get a chance to go out and harvest some, to taste. I know what you mean about being invasive, they are everywhere. All of mine are tiny right now. I've been weeding them out of the semp beds.

I know we sure don't want to let them go to seed.

Lynn - Once you got 'em, you got 'em for life it seems like. I can't get rid of them here either. Sad and I hate radishes, so I'm not gonna try nommin' them.

Rolling on the floor laughing I love radishes, so I will give them a try as a food source. Thumbs up

There you go Lynn, if you can't beat'em then eat'em. Our climate here has them growing all winter then exploding in spring. Guess I may need to go out and do a test taste. Smiling

They are very tiny right now Connie. As soon as I find some with a little size I will be eating them. Green Grin!
Now if I could just figure out for sure which weed is chickweed I'll be set. Yummy salads.
