I was clearing out some unused yard space and came across this cool looking plant growing among wild strawberries and prickly nettle .. at first I thought it was a pine tree growing up through a plant.. nope.. the leaves are dark green and the yellowish colored , long, thing pieces are some sort of seed pod .. I’m hoping it’s not poisonous to people or my cats and dogs because I’d really like to keep it around..

    Maybe a type of yellow rocket aka winter cress (Barbarea). These leaves looks similar to those of bittercress / winter rocket (Barbarea vulgaris). According to sources B. vulgaris is edible. Check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes!
