365 Frankendael day 85


Another monsoon day today, so here’s an edible that loves to have its feet very wet – Cat’s Tail (Typha sp.)
A plant with a multitude of uses. Here’s a useful Wild man Steve Brill link about the plant.


The plant to the left in this next photo is likely to be Common Hogweed (Hereacleaum sphondylium). Common Hogweed is edible and much loved by many foragers so there are many traditional and modern recipes for those who like it but it is easily confused with poisonous plants (especially Giant Hogweed) so if you are interested in it be sure to identify it using several reliable sources before picking and again before cooking.
