I think it is one of the docks..possibly curly dock. If you had said it was lemony tasting I would have said it was sorrel. I have a weed that looks like it, I have never tried to eat the plant but I believe it is edible. It is the bane of my existance. The root if it is chopped with the tiller into tiny pieces..each piece grows.. When I dig it up it never sees my compost pile, into the garbage it goes. http://organicinstlouis.blogspot.com/
I'll have to take a taste and see what it tastes like then!
The leaves do not taste lemony and they do not taste sour.
then my vote is that it is the same dock I have. when i went to vrious sites it looks to me the same..hope I helped
It definitely is a dock (Rumex.) Sorrel is another, cultivated, member of the Rumex family. The leaves should taste sour and lemony. It is delicious with light steaming or sauteing.
most likely either Patience Dock or Curly Dock
try cooking the leaves and see if they taste lemony then.
