This may be one that's unGoogleable?

I've tried, without success, to search out this plant.

When I was a kid, up until about 1974 or so, my grandma and her sisters used to go along the creek and hunt this plant. They collected the greens and cooked them like spinach or mustard greens.

I don't remember what this plant looked like, really, and I've never been able to find a reference for it.

Does this ring any bells for anyone? I think it might have been a species of wild artichoke, but I really don't remember. Thanks.

Cow parsnip greens are a great wild edible: http://www.lauriecon...parsnip-greens/

Maybe that's what they were picking.

That could very well be it?! Although I've not seen any of that here in years.

Marsh marigold or cow marigold? Just a thought.
