Photo of my evidence.
Garlic Mustard, in the early spring has clusters of flowers with four white petals. They grow at the top of the stalk and have seed pods growing out from the stem right below the flowers. The plant we studied did not have any flowers and there were not seed pods. This confirms that this plant in not Garlic Mustard.
