    of a very leafy wild plant that grows on my property (Kenai Peninsula, AK) and I have no clue what they are, but they look like they could be important. Does anyone recognize them? You can also see them as the last post I did on my Facebook page below.

    Yes, I guess it could be a dock - we are supposed to have them in Alaska. I will have to check around with others in the area. I was hoping it was some kind of wild comfrey - but I'm not familiar with them so not sure

    Well, if you recognize it as something your mother used and it has a tang - probably it a dock. I will see if I can find more local information on it. Thanks!
