I have seen most of the weeds in my Kitchen Garden but never knew their names, through Farhan Ahmed's information now I know their names as well, Thanks Farhan. I was wondering, can we use these weeds in our compost bin as we have lots of it in our garden. Thanks.

Do you have a picture? And to which language does the word "khbazi" belong? Once we know that, finding the answer would be easy!

Dear Farhan,

Is there any way to know what these weeds mean in terms of soil health? For example if Amaranth grows in some soil so what nutrients are in excess or deficient in soil which are promoting its growth?
