Ah, I see, the Woodchuck.

"How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?"

I have occasionally wondered.

We call Woolly Docks "Dock Leaves". I should think they're edible if steamed or boiled, but nettles (with plenty of butter, and picked young) would be a lot nicer. Like blackberries, they have to be picked before that time in the early autumn when the Devil goes round and pisses on them.
