little help with edible weeds?

eciton(zone 7)May 19, 2013

so i think this weed that is so abundant in my home garden is lambsquarters/wild spinach but I want to make sure since apparantly a nightshade plant is similar.


close up of leaves

also, i this other plant is dock? theres a ton of it on our property and it gets quite large...12'' leaves or bigger

confirmations from anyone?
