Someone had a nice meal of hosta. Whoever ate the hosta must have liked it because there were no leaves on the ground. I've tried the leaves and don't get it. Even with oil and vinegar, I don't think I 'd like hosta leaves. I do like rabbit (the probable culprit). Not the kind we have in the yard. Our yard rabbits and all the wildlife that call our yard home are like house guests. And you do not eat your house guests.
