I've never seen this one before and I can't find it anywhere online. Any idea what it is? Other than what kale haters picture at the mention of the k-word.

Washington County Oregon

This is a teasel plant, scientific name Dipsacus. It’s curious because the first year is this flat rosette, then next year it bolts quickly to become a tall plant. Slip a shovel down to pop up the roots before it gets any larger.
