If it's chickweed, it makes good green manure - so no need for weed killer  :lol:
and chickens love it....  :lol:

I hate to be a fly in the ointment but looking closely at the foto, it looks very much like aplant that invaded my garden when given to me as a rockery plant, it is called Babies tears, mother of thousands or mind your own business. it is one of the most invasive plants i have come across, any piece of it will regenerate, leaf, root or stem. It grows only about 2" high but it's spread is indefinate.

have a look here http://www.guide-to-houseplants.com/babys-tears.html

i may be wrong but without a better photo, who's to know, if it is chickweed just dig it in

I think this isn't so much 'Name that Weed' as 'Name that Previous Plot-holder's Crop', but I'd like to know for planning what to grow there next.  Is it peas?

Sorry - trying to get it as near the size limit as possible, but the limit is so tiny.  Any better?

Sorry, I've re-cropped the photo to show them - I thought the top bit would be more recognizable.

Looks like possibly radish seed pods, or mustard seed pods

(both brassicas  ;) )

Aahhh - from google images it does look like mustard, which got me thinking that it could also be rape that happens to have landed more or less in a row (there are usually fields of it not too far away).  Either way it's a brassica - they get flippin' everywhere ::)

Thanks

If it's in a row then it won't be self-sown as you suggest.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
