I have this thing going on for our research right now and yet I’m still not settled in with the name of the weed I want to work with.It grows all over our place and commonly seen in bricks, gardens and in corners, and has a minty smell. What I’ve observed that it grows ranging from 3-5 inches (not yet fully matured). It has this lighter or darker green color of leaves, and glossy greenish or reddish stem and roots. Can easily be pulled out and break. I’ve been curious about this weed because we used to play around with this when I was a kid. I did check if it’s chickweed or not, but chickweed grows out flowers and this one doesn’t.

Possibly, without seeing the plant, it may be Portulaca oleracea (little hog weed) Commonly called purslane
