P is for Pokeweed

Down there we have a plant that grows out in the woods
And in the fields looks somethin' like a turnip green
And everybody calls it polk salad, polk salad
- Tony Joe White

  3. I knew it the minute I saw your photo - plenty of it here!
    My mother-in-law used to cook it every Spring when the first leaves appeared.
    Hope you are having a great week!

  4. The berries remind me of blueberries. Now that I know what they are, I won't pick them to eat should I ever see them. I wouldn't mind giving the leaves a taste though.

  5. The purple berries make me think of salal berries that we have in our woods. They don't taste very good though. I tried making jam from them last summer but the taste even with lots of sugar wasn't to my liking. - Margy
