I have only eaten it in salads, as well. I reckon it would be good as a cooked green, although I 'spect it would cook down much like poke weed and therefore require a huge amount in order to have enough to go around.

I used to be a racist, but I don't have much interest in it since Dale Earnhardt got killed.

Huh.. who knew... I keep trying to eradicate that from the garden.

I suppose now that I know it will stop growing. I suppose I can tell the people over at the garden that is edible then we can let it grow without getting a weed letter. Kathleen doesn't like weed letters.

No, I have never eaten it. I probably read from Euell Gibbons that it was edible and have carefully cultivated it in my gardens for at least 30 years, as an insurance crop, but to this day I have never eaten it

I don't care for it, but the chickens adore it.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

Mine love skunk cabbage. Who knew chickens could be so good about weeding! If only they would stay out of the garden!
