Snowberry seems like a great possibility.  Thank you.  The flower looking like a monster comment was that a mistype or being funny?

Thanks everyone.  I agree the first shrub like plant looks like something in the pea family.  we mostly get black locust but I know it's not that.  The leaves are thick and almost fuzzy (almost mullein texture). Locust are thin and smooth.  (It's not something I planted). The third pic that's the plant at full maturity.  If I remember from last year.  It's gone by mid summer.  I like that it pops up so I'm hoping to identify.

Looking for help to id two plants.  First appears to be a shrub.  The leaves are somewhat course.  The second is some flowering plant.  I have a small stand of them near my apple tree

YouTube wranglestar pocket knife videos.  I keep one because of him.  Saves you so many trips when you have knife handy

Im interested in what others say but I heard conflicting reports regarding buckwheat.  They are in the Polygonaceae family and I remember Frank Cook saying that everything in this family is either edible or medicinal but nothing poisonous.  So my tendency would rely on his word.  I guess moderation is the key to everything and luckily everything has a season.

Cool stuff.  I've seen some of your videos on YouTube before including the one where you hand dug a pond.  But I was wondering if you could explain building that micro pond in this garden.  I would like to incorporate some of these in my space.  Thanks, Aaron

Thanks for the responses.  Dandelion, chicory, dock- I guess I can't go wrong.  But appears I'll need to wait and see if it flowers to ultimately know for sure.  Thanks again

Hi,  Trying to decide whether to keep these in a perennial garden.  Kinda eliminated dandelion and chicory from the possibilities but not 100% on that.  Leaves foot long or more and no flowering yet.  If anyone has suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks, Aaron

@Joseph.  This might be for a different topic but I wonder what you think about high brix gardening and growing nutrient dense food.  I'm curious because I'm thinking (perhaps incorrectly) that even though a plant survives and produces seed that plant isn't necessarily worth saving if the soil is poor.  Because your essentially creating plants that tolerate poor soils and not increasing health.  all this of course comes from reading their literature of late and I'm curious what others think before heading down this path.  That being said you personally have inspired me to save seeds and I appreciate what you bring to permies
