A nasty tough weed!

This is growing in my NH gardens-mostly in the vegetable, but some in the flower.I really would love to know what these weeds are. They appear every year, started out looking like seedlings of pansies, or that type of leaf. But now they have spread over my garden, and I end up scraping the top layer of soil off (!) and throwing it away. Please help-I can't find it in any data base.

Linneaz writes: The leaf looks a lot like ajuga reptans (AKA bugleweed). It is a perennial producing pretty blue flowers about this time of year. When it likes its growing conditions, it gets very invasive. I suspect it easily grows from little bits of root left behind when removing it, so if you remove one plant, you get a hundred new ones in exchange. Posted: 11:08 am on May 15th
