I need a double ID here please.. :D

What is this stringy weed with the long stems and tiny flowers? It seems to be somewhat wet inside when pulled and broken open..

And what are the pink flowers with the toothed petal edges?

^ Ah, I think you're right, on both counts!

Apparently, chickweed is quite edible too. I may have to try some of it now.. :P
