“Chickweed will benefit the soil if left to grow and die back on its own. For a tidier garden, cut the plants back monthly and tuck them under the mulch, or lay them on top of the soil to naturally decompose. Leave the roots intact—the plant will either regrow, or the roots will decay, enriching the soil and attracting beneficial soil organisms.” - Amy from “5 Weeds You Want in your Garden”

    Chickweeds was here even before I started the backyard reviving project. They were poking out from the soil cover that the house’s owner put before we moved in. They’re just little humble tiny weeds that, as the quote above states, benefit the soil (just as I needed!) and edible as other weeds are.
    Again, even though I could collect and eat them, I’m still hesitant. I remember the deadly amount of pesticides that I sprayed on this area and house.
