I need help to identify some Weeds in my garden. I've already identified several Edible Weeds growing in my garden (stinging nettle, Henbit, Chickweed), and hope to find more wild edibles growing in my garden ....

I searched for references to Horseweed, but the plant in my garden doesn't look anything like the references to Horseweed ....

I might be wrong , but it looks like the rosette stage of horseweed. If so , it will begin to bolt and develop a single stalk with lance shaped leaves. The rosette stage plant is about 6 inches across?

I was thinking the same thing .... Will have to wait and observe the stages of development .....
