Huntsville was formerly known as the watercress capitol of the world. This may have little to do with the wild mustard family plant growing under the boardwalk at Beaverdam. Watercress, at least some types, is edible and is exceptionally rich in vitamins and minerals. Why don't we eat more of it? Notice the similarity of the blossom with the familiar wildflower "Toothwort" also in the mustard family.
