Another easily overlooked 'weed' out here is the peppergrass.  The leaveas are actually the seed pods.  I never paid attention enough to know that.  They are very small plants, and as you can guess the flowers are very tiny.

Here is one next to the Heron Bill Filaree, which is a very small flower.

Here's a close up of these very tiny flowers and all the seed pods.

A real close look at how the seed pods are growing right out from the flowers.
These may look nettly, but are edible.  I could imagine using them to help season whatever else I might have to eat a hundred years or more ago.
