Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata)

This is Garlic Mustard (also known as Jack-by-the-hedge and Hedge Garlic). It's VERY common in the UK, and you can find baby leaves from late winter through to late spring.

It has a mild oniony flavour, and is apparently very good with fish or in mint sauce.

These pictures were taken on Sunday at the allotments (click to view bigger).
