Plants ID

I found two plants in my backyard and am wondering if they are edible.

Anyone know their names?

Thanks,

Steve

Does that 1st plant smell like a cucumber/celery hybrid when young and with a guava overtone when the leaves are older.
I really just love the smell.

The second one I also have. I dont know the name fore either one.

Both plants have milk and the first is a little bitter like dandelion.

It's easy to make them edible: step(1) pick them and roughly chop them; step(2) feed them to your chickens; step(3) collect and prepare ensuing eggs.
