Judge not, you don't know their story.

Looks like mustard greens that have gone to seed.

thanks, CJ and BJ.
anyone else's 2 cents welcome. thanks.
have told DGD to not eat it which are wasted words cuz she already knew that. but grammas just have to say it anyway.

I agree that it looks like some kind of greens that have gone to seed. Let the seeds dry on the plant as much as possible and then save them to plant this fall. She might get a great crop of greens then!

I agree with the mustard plants gone to seed, the wild kind, not necessarily the kind you buy to plant in the veggie garden. You can still eat the greens. We used to pick them and eat them, very tasty.
