Hi everyone,
Can anyone identify this plant? It was found in a meadow September 18 in eastern Massachusetts. It was growing near Burdock, Chicory, Dandelions, & not too far from Plantain. The plants are growing in drought conditions.  I have seen a lot of these popping up over the past few weeks.
Thanks!

Agree, that is curly dock. Young leaves good in salad or soup. Amish make medicinal out of root they call it yellow dock.
