just so you know in case your hungry. The plants in the second picture... Century... you can eat when it is starting to shoot the stalk up in the spring. You gotta get it when its only like 3 or 4 ft tall. Chop it off low, shave off the outside and eat the middle. Its excellent. Its like a watermelon cucumber. Just so you know.
