Description

Kenilworth ivy on wall and pelitory of the wall on the ground. Both are edible. The pellitory tasted like cucumber or borage flower to me, also a diuretic. The Ivy leaved toadflax is said to taste like bitter cress, acrid and somewhat bitter, and is enjoy in salad. I guess you can blend any of the two into soup with some caramelize onion and a good stock.

Description

Not a test, seemed to be growing wild at the edge of this abandoned lot. This site was a Shell station a year or two ago and has since been fenced and undeveloped. It used to be paved, and there are still some remnants of pavement. Surface is now a mix of gravel and soil, but I'm not sure if that was fill laid on top of the site when the station was removed, or what was underneath all that pavement.

This site is sort of the highlight of my walk to BART. It's as weedy as can be, largely featuring introduced weeds, but also with a few natives (arroyo lupine, poppies, coyotebush) and some oddballs like this. It's kind of the only wild place in Rockridge.
