In, the springtime the children delight to chew the acid foliage of this familiar and so-called Sour Grass. My mouth actually waters now, as I recall the sen-sation produced by the tartness of these green leaves, which I, too, used to nibble. The young leaves make a palatable salad and pot green. It grows in dry fields and on hillsides throughout the entire length and breadth of the land, and is found from May to September. Several slender, leafy, branching stems rise from a tuft of leaves. The rootstock is woody and creeping. The smooth, thick, juicy, long arrow-shaped leaves have two pointed lobes flaring from the base. Their margins are toothless, and they are set on long, grooved stems. The very tiny, six-parted, bright greenish yellow flowers soon turn to reddish or dull crimson, and are gathered in long, slim, curving, feathery spikes which terminate the slender branches. Sour Grass is exceeding common, and is found in all sorts of locations, most everywhere.
