We have an abandoned hoop house with no cover on our new property, and this is growing all over the old beds in there. The goats love it. The tallest it gets is about 6 inches and its flowering now in Zone 6/7. Any ideas?

I thought the flowers looked clover-ish, but the leaves do not at all.

Hard to say, maybe "chickweed". Check out google images.

Maybe a mouse ear chickweed ? The purple in stem and flower has me puzzled .

Almost certainly some kind of cress. If so, it's edible!
 
Of course, I found a very beautiful couch. Definitely. And this tiny ad:
