OT - Help With Plant Identification

dbCooperdbCooper Posts: 454
These are growing wild in the alley behind neighbours and my property.  Approximate 2.5 ft. stem with long slender leaves and white bulbish head (flower?).  I quizzed him about them and he thinks they are garlic plants.  We cut off a couple leaves and ate them, certainly a garlic taste. 
A internet search of wild garlic did not bring me any results that look like this plant.  Anyone know what these are?

    Looks like garlic to me.  Did you pull one to see if there was bulb underground?

    It looks like garlic all day long to me.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Thanks @Mattman3969 and @SGH good to know.
    I'll chat with neighbor about digging one up.  They are growing on public ground but he "found" them, so kinda feel he's got first dibs on them.

    I concur.  Definitely some autotrophism there.
