Chickweed is quite tasty and very prolific.
Basil is a big producer. It wasn’t long after a very large harvest, that the plants were ready for another one.

    1. Yes, it did taste good – juicy/fresh sprout like. I haven’t had much of it but what I did eat didn’t cause any side effects. I did a very quick search on it and there seems to be mixed messages on it, but on balance it is safe to eat as long you don’t eat too much. http://www.kingdomplantae.net/chickweed.php
      Apparently eating “too much” could cause some issues, gastro-intestinal problems…
      I’m guessing the chickweed originally entered my yard via manure but that was quite a few years ago – possibly 10 plus.
