for the first time in my life I've actually found watercress growing wild, and I've been searching ever since reading Euell Gibbons's books back in the early 70s. it's growing along Corona Creek in Petaluma, between McDowell and Sonoma Mtn. Pkwy., along Liverpool Way. also found some osage orange and peppermint growing along another creek, the one south of G&G Market that runs along Sunshine Way, where I found all the lychee nuts last winter. turns out the edibility of osage orange is in dispute, but the watercress and mint were excellent. and I picked up some grass-fed burger on sale at G&G for under $4/lb. and cooked it over charcoal for a delicious dinner.
