Curled Dock or Yellow Dock. They young leaves may be eaten raw. Once the flower spikes appear, as in this photo, boiling it in a change of water removes some of the bitterness. Mix it with milder greens to cut the flavor more. A soup can be made by dicing up young dock leaves and tossing them in a can of mushroom soup with some crumbled bacon and diced potatoes. The papery sheath holding the seeds is a natural laxative. The seeds can be roasted for a snack, boiled into porridge, etc.
Have you seen this purple, fuzzy looking weed with square stems and teeny tiny pink flowers popping up in lawns? Meet Lamium purpureum, a mint family plant known as Purple Dead Nettle. It is edible and high in antioxidants, those cancer-busting compounds we can all use more of! Source: http://firstways.com/
