There are so many things that grow and are just pretty much green and leafy. I want to know what they are so I can find out if they are useful (edible or medicinal).

These are all growing my by back fence where there is a good bit of shade from the trees. The soil is very clayey and when it rains a lot it doesn't drain very well back here so often gets a bit soggy. Our land is slightly sloped, and this is right before the slope ends. Also, the part that can get soggy is just a few feet beyond this part along the fence.

Top view of this one. It isn't very tall-maybe 1-2 foot

Same plant, but from the side

Something different, I think... Much twiggier than the one above

Not a good quality picture, but this is the twiggier one from above so you can see its spread a bit. It also is not very tall. Maybe 1-3 foot

This one got to be about 4 foot tall and wound its way through the fence a little bit. This shows leaves and flowerbuds

Same as the above plant, but a little more clarity on the leaves

It may help if you tell us where you live.

Oh hey, neighbor! I'm a bit west of you.

I don't know any of those weeds. The last one looks familiar but I don't know what it is. Hopefully someone else will have some ideas.
 
That feels good. Thanks. Here's a tiny ad:
