Wendy, how much do you take of Burdock in that case - eat it, tincture?

Donna, yes you are right! However, if we are looking for the plant to dig and eat, the seedheads will direct is to where to look down to find the new leaves.

Burdock is a biennial, once we see the seedheads the root is long gone. The root is best medicinally, and most tasty in fall of its first year.

While I love the beautiful photo of Burdocks seed head babies, I think this is not the one to dig. Am I right? We want to dig her before she goes to seed in her second year when her root is fullest of nourishment for our bodies.
