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.

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.
