I used my foraging journal yesterday. In driving the missus to town for her daily constitutional a couple days ago, I happened to see a pokeweed sticking up in the brush along the road. Remembering a location where I knew there should be some available, I checked my journal yesterday. It showed me to be correct, but it also showed another location that I’d forgotten. As it turned out, I was able to pick the first location, but they’d recently mowed and done some grading at the second location. Maybe they’ll grow back, if not this year, then maybe next.
I was able to pick enough to share with my mom, but neither of us have cooked them yet. I KNOW they’ll be good though! © 2016
