Thanks for posting this, as many of these are vey commonly found in spring, summer and/or fall. 

One interesting tidbit about chickweed is that it is high in copper, thus useful to goat owners who want to help their goats remain worm-free.  Goats are subject to the same internal parasites as deer and sheep, and should be rotated to different pastures every few years, at least every 3 years.  Plus, if they get enough copper in their diets, they are much less likely to be infested with parasites, as the invaders do not do well in an environment where there is copper.  Neither chickweed nor copper will kill parasites, but they make the intestines less hospitable for them to take up residence.

And besides humans and goats do like chickweed, so it's a winner all around.

Great info, ilinda and pbutter!
Chickweed is great stuff. It is included in some natural formulations to help the liver.
