Sow Thistle – an abundant and tasty wild edible

http://www.eattheweeds.com/sonchus-sow-thistle-in-a-pigs-eye-2/   I've seen these growing all over the San Diego area. This plant was brought over to the west by the early colonists and used as an actual vegetable believe it or not.  And we've looked at these everyday in our yards and street sides thinking "what a nuisance plant that is."  Go figure.
