Alas, cattail in may area is abundant, but is set up mostly in water collection and drainage ponds....good for the creeks as the cattails suck up the nitrates from the suburbanite lawns...bad as a food source as the lawn treatments also use weed killers that are cancer causing and are also sucked up by the cattails.cattail sprouts
We get a lot of chickory here, but mostly along roadways, and chemical road treatments plus leakage from car motors = not a good source. I've once gotten some from a field with permission, but one needs to double check, as sometimes the farmers are unsure which field their bull is using at the time.
