No, it was not chickweed.  I have enough of it to supply the world.  The 
slimy stuff is locally called "Star of Bethlehem." It comes from tiny bulbs 
and if allowed to grow really big will have little white star-shaped flowers. 
 The problem is that by the time it's big enough to bloom the rest of the 
yard is two feet tall, and with all the nut sedge, locust trees, lespedeza 
and crown vetch, that is just not a possibility. <LOL> No wonder I have 
between two and three dozen deer munching every night.
