After a morning meeting at the office, I hit the water to scout parts of the river I'd not fished. I saw no carp or bass but I did make a nice find,cynara cardunculus, or more commonly known as wild artichoke. These plants, from my limited understanding, are edible and taste just like its domestic counterparts although one must be careful as it contains very sharp thorns just about everywhere. Perhaps next time I hit the water I shall forage a few and see how they taste. Since I'm no expert, I just want to make sure there are no poisonous lookalikes.
