WE, that's been up for a while. I think it was one of your threads that inspired it.

Canid, it's the only one I've tried so far that wasn't bitter or sour, although I may have got lucky. I only took a nibble for taste. I did taste it after tasting the WinterCress so that may be why it seemed mild to me.

CG, I spent a good 15 minutes digging a long tap root just to find out the yellow root supposedly isn't edible. If I find a clean location I will bring a mess of leaves home to try.
