Vassarve Våtarv Almindelig Fuglegræs Chickweed

 

Very common throughout  the region.

It grows in all types of culture impacted soils, but prefers moist shady places that are rich in nitrogen.

 

The leaves can be used in salad, in pasta and rice dishes or steamed as a vegetable (although vast quantities would be required for the latter).
