Lamb's-quarters ?

Lamb's-quarters, Pigweed, Chenopodium album .
This is a plant much loved by Pattie from the Foodshed and I direct you to her piece on its many qualities and some photos of it:
Scroll down to 'For my friends in Australia' (that's us).

Do we have this 'weed' here and does anyone have some we can share ?

Fat hen and white goosefoot are other names. Its okay for chickens but not for cattle.

Kate the blog looks great.
No lambs-quarters or fat hens but a big fat pumpkin!
