  1. I just happen to enjoy watercress whenever I please this time of year. We have a natural spring on our property that watercress grows wild in ice cold water temps. My grandfather, who taught me fishing, bought this land for the spring that’s on it and watercress. Every time we went fishing, we always had a great side dish with watercress. In fact #1, you talked me into it. Watercress is on my menu today.

    1. I love broccoli, Millard, but am fairly unfamiliar with watercress. However, I’m sticking to my one tried and true method – apricot kernels.

      They may not be all that tasty, but they sure as hell work! 😉
