I think I should also have the spotting when it's flowering and you identified it but should be long time ago :). Yes a lot of cheese and wine and a bit of snails :)

And so far, you are most familiar with the cheese-plant and the baguette-plant! There plants are very good to know in France... haha

woops, then maybe you won't be able to eat them in case you're lost in the French jungle :S But there are tons of other edible plants, so no worries :)

That is so great!!!!

Thank you, Tiz, didn't know that! :)
I found that " shoots are edible raw. young leaves are edible raw.
flowers are edible raw. flower bud clusters can be cooked as vegetable.
stem pith can be added to soups as thickener." http://northernbushcraft.com/plants/fire...
I can eat them whole summer, they are growing in huge amounts in my country! :D :)
