Looks like tonight we dine on burdock!
Not tried it before

Remembered to shove a stick in the ground next to a plant in its first year (not flowered, no burrs) so I didn't forget where it was

It's pretty big

Looking forward to trying a self sown native carb hit!

We've got a fair few round the edges of the meadow. Often find the burrs stuck to your clothing. I've taken to throwing them in the compost bin, with the thought that some of the resulting seedlings can be left to grow on for food

@dazinism Look for Japanese gobo recipes (if you don't already have a recipe in mind...)

Cooking and eating burdock was one of the happiest results of a foraging adventure that I've had. Hope your experience is the same!
