Notes:

These wild plants come up every year in my planters. They have toothed leaves similar to a dandelion and clusters of tiny yellow flowers at the end of each stalk. The flowers are about 1/4″ wide. The main stem is round, about the size of a drinking straw. The leaves are mostly basil but there are a few alternate leaves along the main stem. I don’t like calling them “weeds.” Am hoping the leaves are edible…
