No, not from a seed mix. It's all over my neighborhood right now so I assume it's just a weed. I'll pull some up tomorrow and look at the root.Is that from a tortoise seed mix? Looks like a turnip to me.
There are a couple apps you can download on your phone that you can use to identify plants and flowers by taking a picture of them.View attachment 258283 View attachment 258284 View attachment 258282 This one has me confused because I've seen it called different things.. some feedable, some not.
It's slightly fuzzy.. and suddenly everywhere I look including this pot.
(I think it is mislabeled in the plant ID sticky as milk thistle btw)
Thanks in advance for the help!
I have 2 of those apps but I don't think it's correct in its ID. The only one that looks even close is rumex dock but I don't think it is. I never have luck with those apps.There are a couple apps you can download on your phone that you can use to identify plants and flowers by taking a picture of them.
Haha! I like bitter greens too but my tort boys have been softened by their years of pampered domestication... they don't go for the bitter stuff without some pressure.Wild mustard is pretty bitter, especially as it matures. I wouldn’t think it’s too bitter now but I like my greens bitter so young mustard doesn’t taste bad to me.
I’ve never had a wild turnip; I can’t imagine it would taste as good as domesticated ones though.
All the wild ones are more intense and bitter because... they’re wild! We’ve bred the most intense bitterness out of them for human consumption. Fortunately, Russians in the wild eat bitter, scrubby things all the time. My Russian is like me, bitter is the best!
