  Bill, 

  They are two different things.  Chickweed is Stellaria media and Creeping Charlie is Glechoma hederacea.

    Just to be sure we're talking about the same thing, isn't chickweed the same 
    thing as Creeping Charlie? It's a member of the mint family (square stem 
    cross-section) and inhabits many lawns as a difficult weed. I've always 
    hated the smell when it's bruised. Are they putting it in salads? Sorry to 
    press you for details but I'm a little surprised.
