About that unknown plant...

I appreciate everyone's help with trying to figure out what it is/was a few days back.

We are now *fairly* sure that it is a type of sorrel, probably "garden sorrel." The pictures I found and the description look awfully close to the plant the guy gave us (not exact, but we'll get some to try anyway), even if there's no mention of Greek cooking. One source said it was popular in Russian cooking, and that is what these folks were, so we're guessing this is it.

thanks for y'alls help!

Thanks for the update...I was wondering, but as I had no clue I stayed out of the thread...

I rarely let ignorance keep me from having an opinion. You may have noticed....

Yeah, guess I have the same problem. Right after Christmas, one of my best friends at work (a 70-ish PhD Rhodes-scholar engineer) asked me what Pam had given me for Christmas.

So I told him she'd given me a manure spreader, and that I'd tried it out and had a great time covering my fields with barn droppings.

Well, he looked at me for just a second and says "Tom, most folks have a totally different hobby from what they do at work, but I see your's is the same!"

hmmmm, some reputation I've got.

We must be twins!

I've never been accused of that, but I suspect that's only cuz most folks don't know I've got a spreader...
