I see this weed everywhere, and it turns out it’s edible. Apparently, it’s not delicious or choice, but if you were stranded and had nothing else to eat, this is one of the things that you could eat. I’ve read it’s preferable boiled, and the flowers and seeds are the best part with a somewhat peppery taste.
