    Default Is this bull thistle

    Dont mind the knives, this is the only pic I have at the moment. Are these plants bull thistle, and are they edible? Im hoping they are considering my yard is filled with them.

    I don't believe it is. Doesn't look the Bull Thistle I know, nor does it look like musk thistle. Reminds me more of dandelion or chicory.

    I can't tell from the picture, but does it have spines at all on it?
