help identifying weed

I need some help identifying this weed that is spreading in my yard. It is spreading quickly and I would like to kill it before it takes over. Thanks for any help offered.

Purslane or better known as "Spurge"!
We all are merely gleaners from the masters who were here before us.

It is 5 to 6% N and high in omega 3 fatty acids, harvest it as a fertilizer or feed it to your chickens and you will have high Omega 3 eggs, pretty cool

before the world decided there were weeds it was chariest as an anointment used often soups

Duck weed has close to the same profile
