June 4:
Cow parsnip (Heracleum maximum)

In the carrot family. Wikipedia: "The thick flower stems, coming into season in early summer, can be peeled and eaten cooked when young... Cow parsnip is a valuable pasture plant for cows, sheep, and goats. It is also known to be important in the diets of numerous wild animals, especially bears, both grizzly and black." However I only have rabbits, raccoons and possum and they have not discovered it. But an interesting (vertical) addition to a perennial garden. Tiny woodland strawberry is at its base.
