Wintercress (Barbarea vulgaris) is past its prime now. The rosette of large but tender leaves are good cooked in late winter, but are bitter now. I'm mentioning the plant because the flower buds are OK cooked. Some claim they are like tiny broccoli. The buds are somewhat bitter eat raw, but I do nibble them on occasion.

I'm not sure how one could eat the greens, I found one unchewed bite bitter enough to give me an instant headache!
Apparently you can grow them in the dark(blanching?) and then they taste great, but I can't imagine going to the effort.
The pet bunnies like it just fine as is.
