Sounds like it may be sow thistle.

Welcome back!

Definitely check out Echo right there in Fort Myers for plants that grow well down here (echonet dot org). They have some free workshops coming up June 14th. I also highly recommend joining the the local and regional permaculture groups (meetup dot com). I recently had the pleasure of spending some time with some of the Naples group. Friendly, well informed and very knowledgeable people!

Hello fellow Floridians! We will be in the Naples area this Wednesday through Friday (May 21st). I am curious if you know of any local food forests, edible plant nurseries, or wild food walks in the area? Much appreciated!

I figure if they were edible in 1914 (the source I cited before) then I would at least try them now! I've found that too many of the newer books (even experts) often wrote "what every knew" but that was often mistaken. Then everyone else picks up the refrain. I've know wildcrafter who have found a couple of re-discovered wild edibles sifting through sources this way.

I found a couple of places where it's been eaten or the taste described so I'm assuming it is edible. Most sites just seem to parrot the line "not considered edible". See http://www.scribd.com/doc/61177356/12/MATRIMONY-VINE-Lycium-vulgare (page 12). I wish I had a copy of the original text; we've lost so much that our grandparents knew!

The second one, IMG_0242.JPG, is wild geranium.  I eat it raw (small amounts) and cooked and am making a tincture out of the roots; see http://www.eattheweeds.com/www.EatTheWeeds.Com/EatTheWeeds.com/Entries/1937/7/24_Stork’s_Bill,_Cranesbill.html. ;

If no one responds on the fourth pic, I'll look it up in my notes (not currently handy).  If it's the one I have in my yard, leaves when young are edible.  The first pic almost looks like my sorrels but it's hard to tell from that single pic and angle.  I don't recall ever seeing the third one, sorry.
