This grasslike plant grows in an abandoned tomato garden in Habersham County. The leaves are about 2 and a half inches long. Note the little “ears” at the base of the leafs.

    Rumex acetosella, aka sheep sorrel, red sorrel, sour weed or field sorrel. although with the battles I’ve had with it, I sometimes refer to it as devil weed. It is a good indicator of acidic soil and is tough to erradicate due to its rhizomes. On the plus side it is edible. The leaves have a lemony, tangy or nicely tart flavor.
