I believe I have identified the weed I was asking about. It looks like it is a blue mustard, chorispora tenella, sometimes called musk mustard. It is edible for humans. I think it would be okay for my Russian tort, as mustard greens are okay.
What do you all think?

Interesting plant. Here’s a good article on it, noting that it is an “uncommon” plant (maybe the author meant uncommon in Illinois).
Perhaps everywhere; I had never heard of such a thing. I can’t think of any blue flowered brassicas offhand.
