    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.

    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
