Could someone help me identify this weed? Several of these sprung up in my garden this past summer. I am in Northwest Florida.

I'm about as far from an expert as you can get, so keep that in mind. It might be wild lettuce.

Maybe a sow thistle? These are not 'true thistles'

Your probably in the same region as Green Deane of Eat the Weeds. Perhaps his Youtube videos, Website, and forum will be helpful.

I believe we'relooking at American Burnweed. One of its common names, pileweed, hints to its history as a folk remedy for hemorrhoids. I've never tried it, but supposedly you can blanch and eat it if you pick it young.

Thanks for the replies. Ben, I believe you are correct. I did some looking into American Burnweed and I believe this is it.
