Hedge mustard?

Post by dizzy on Fri May 31, 2013 12:49 am

There's a plant growing out at the farm that's been driving me nuts for a couple of years now. I kept forgetting to either take some home, or take my plant ID book out w/me. I was pretty sure it was in the brassicaceae family because of the general appearance, just didn't know which one.

The other day, I finally remembered to take my book w/me and was able to id it. It's hedge mustard, Sisymbrium officinale.

Now I'm curious if anyone here has any experience w/it. There's quite a number of plants out there, and so far the only thing I know for sure it's good for is starting fires when it's dead. Does anyone else have it growing around them, and use it?

Do you have a link to pictures of it? I've never heard of it before.

Here's a link to a Wikipedia page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sisymbrium_officinale I know you're supposed to be able to use it for food and medicine, and was hoping someone here had done so.

Thanks for the link. It doesn't look familiar to me, but am curious about it now. Smile

I've never seen anything like that. Now I'm curious too.
