Zone 7a/b. For me, plants aren't a hobby nor collectors items. They are my therapy and my medication. Some take Xanax or weed, I clean leaves.

It's that time of year! Little ribeye with a side of Polk Salad. I'm not sure why we spell it poke cause we darn sure say Poke! #realfood #ditchweed

@emch you have to pick it before it turns purple. Wash, boil, rinse, then cook it. It's very edible! And good eats.

@KariSamuel I keep coming back to this comment. "I would boil the bajeebers out of it before eating". 'Bajeebers'. I love that you said Bajeebers. My gramma used to say it ALL the TIME. that and fortyeleven! "Now Janna! I've told you fortyeleven times!! And EeeGads! Oh. Goodness. She's been gone 7 years. And I can still hear her voice when I read Bajeebers. Words cannot express my gratitude for you stirring up all those memories. Thank you. So much.
