Finding Succory (Chicory)

Succory on the bank under my window, probably from flowers I have thrown out within a year or two. A rainbow in the west this morning . Hot weather. (1853)

Finding Jersey Tea

Jersey tea. Young oak shoots have grown from one and a half to three or four feet, but now in some cases appear to be checked and a large bud to have formed. Poke, a day or two. Small crypta Elatine, apparently some days at least, at Callitriche Pool. Rubus trifloras berries, some time, - the earliest fruit of a rubus. The berries are very scarce, light (wine ?) red, semitransparent, showing the seed; a few (six to ten) large shining. (1854)
