Found thick throughout a hay field. Top picture is after it’s mowed and dried. The second is alive in the field.

    You’re welcome! Yes, once you know of a plant species that’s when you realize they were hiding in plain sight all along.

    Flowers detail are not too clear, but other details appear pointing toward something in the Lamiaceae family (mint). I’m speculating this might be the wild basil (Clinopodium vulgare) a species in the Clinopodium genus, its bruised leaves are aromatic. Click on images to enlarge from the included link below. If this is wild basil, I suggest you should contact the local Agriculture Extension to have a confirmed ID for consumption purposes. Best wishes!
