Thanks DD, that's exactly it!

Also, it looks pretty useful as well - especially the tea bit for the gardening mug or three...

Mind you, you'd need the diuretic qualities after that...;0)

Easiest way to identify dead nettles are by their square stems (that and they don't sting!)

That's interesting tea!

We took on the 'Patch' last year, long after they'd died down, and although the rasps have been cut back (they're autumn fruiting), there is a huge scrunge of growth to clear at the base, and this stuff is all over the place!

I don't mind it being there actually, as there are loads of flowers to come later!

Weed identification please

Hi guys, what a lovely day, really enjoying the weather 

Wondered if I could call you your expertees out there.  I am weeding with gusto and came across this little darling!  Before I rip them out I thought I should try to identify it in case I am removing a potential beauty.

Thanks a bunch.

Hi there, I hope this is the right place to put this.  My mom found this plant in her garden... I think it might be the arugula I tried to grow last year(which never sprouted), but am not completely sure.  Any thoughts? 

(She wants an "expert" opinion before she risks eating it)  :wub:

Sassy Lassy it looks like Corn Salad vit (Lamb's Lettuce)) to me, have a look at the pic in the link.                     http://www.lamourbotanique.co.uk/ourshop/prod_1661102-Organic-Corn-Salad-Seeds-Vit-.html

What do you reckon?

Catalpa it certainly looks like wild Rocket (Arugula) to me. A nibble will confirm as it has a destinctive peppery taste  ;)

I pick dead nettles for my rabbits. I usually look for ones with flowers first and then identify via the stems.

If it helps, I agree with MoS on both of these --- tasty additions  :D

Thanks for your opinions and the link.  It certainly does look like the picture - I just didn't have any salad crops in that flower bed last year but that's the fun of gardening.  I will give it a bit of a chew and so what it tastes like.

Thanks again

Thanks all   :) 

She will be tasting some tomorrow to confirm.

It appears that the trick to growing arugula/rocket in Ohio is to let it sit through a mild winter before eating...      :tongue2:

Got another one here, growing freely in semi shade around my office. Theres loads of the stuff next to huge holly bushes.

I like it so much I wonder if I can take a cutting from it.

Oh that would be the dreaded Mare's tail,the powder it released would be spores for more. Put a plastic bag over it & pull it up & then see if you can dig all of the root out. Good luck
