Sochan (Rudbeckia laciniata). It's up and ready to eat. This is the good stuff! This is a picture of sochan near the Wabash River in Tippecanoe County. Look for it where the river floods at times of high water. Eat it now while it's fresh out of the ground. By summer it will taste like a mouthful of turpentine. Picture taken April 10, 2011.

WARNING: Don't eat the poison hemlock! That's up and green too. Make sure you can tell the difference.
