Regarding garlic mustard. I read (I think maybe in John Kallas' Edible Wild Plants book) that there is a festival in Maryland that challenges people to find new and creative culinary uses for garlic mustard. After a quick search, I found this article: http://www.examiner.com/article/11th-annual-garlic-mustard-challenge-may-2-invasive-but-edible

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this idea in "battling" this opportunistic plant. Are there any other areas that have this idea of finding creative uses for garlic mustard on a large scale?

Korean Hot Pot!!!

I hate Kale but I love it in a Hot Pot. Garlic mustard can be very strong but boiling in spicy stock takes alot of the bitter bite out of it. At the same time it adds flavor to the boiling liquid.

I'd really like to taste this plant. I've read about it. I wonder if it would be less likely to get out of hand with detroits cold winters. Is detroit still getting cold winters?
