To Eat It or Not To Eat It?

We've recently moved into a new place with an empty lot. The previous tenants used parts of the lot to garden, but it's now overgrown with a mix of food plants and weeds. Over the past month, we've had this plant popping up. It looks sort of spinachy, but we don't want to start mixing it into salads unless it's actually edible. Can anyone identify it? Closer look here.

What do I need to make this Toro weed trimmer work?

I was given an electric Toro weed trimmer. It powers up and the motor seems to function fine, but it's missing the part required to hold the wire. What do I need to attach to it? Some part, some cap, a thingy, a doohickey? Not even sure what to search for or ask for at the hardware store. Here are pictures of its business end. Can you tell me what I need to buy to make this work?

Please help me identify the plants - flowers, weeds, veggies, herbs - in the garden of the house we just bought. There are several plants that I don't recognize, so I'd really appreciate any clues you might have! [more inside]
