Weed indenification

Weeds are in a relatively shady wet spot with heavy clay soil and they are everywhere! probably about 1000sq ft of them. I believe one is mouse-ear chickweed but is the other dandelion? The leaves are similar but I've never seen them that color before. No herbicides were used in area.

I would look at it as a variety of prickly lettuce, but it sure has gotten thick... I bet it connects by rhizomes...

Good call, Axe. And my vote goes to mouse ear chick, for second weed.

lettuce is right for first weed.

I'll go out and see if there's a milky sap in the leaves. Also, there aren't hairs on the chickweed so I guess it's just common chickweed, not mouse ear? Ill go get some better picks.
