Swiss Bright Lights Chard. I don't know for sure though and I'm not sure if I want to try "cooking" it and consuming it to find out...I don't want to get sick, though the thought of possibly tearing everything out makes me a bit sad. I wish there was a way to find out for sure. I have tasted the leaves, and they were very tangy tasting (raw).
flowering" rhubarb I find on google. But nothing else looks like a rhubarb, so it's probably not a rhubarb. It sort of looks like a Japanese Knotweed as well. Since there are tons of dried up, dead brush, I'm thinking this is a possibility. Not to happy if that's the case, it seems like it's as bad as bamboo when it comes to getting rid of it. Ugh, that's not a pleasant thought, let me tell you.
I also found this little guy- only one in the entire bed. It looks like a strawberry plant. I think I'll keep it and see what happens. I'm aiming to get the beds mostly cleared by the end of the week. I have some berries bushes to plant too, so hopefully I'll get those in the ground by the end of the week.
