I have lettuce, snap and snow peas, round de nice squash, and alpine strawberries.

Though, the empty lot on the way home provided most of what I am having for lunch.

Batter fried lambs quarter greens with julienned burdock flower stalks, seasoned with bee balm.
chickweed salad with burdock flower stalk
service berries

One of my cherry tomatoes is turning yellow, I am so excited and can't wait for it to turn red. We are getting couple hot days, so I think it will be ready tomorrow. My mom and I will have to split it, she has been watching it too :-). Will report soon.

I never heard of polk sallet, I googled it and looks like it's a new trend with clubs for salad, is this how you ate it? in a salad?

I had some black raspberries so I would have something to post. I did consider eating some of the squash flowers that fell off, though. Maybe I'll eat a couple for dinner.

They're not too big, but I might eat them tonight anyway. The pole beans have flowers. The tomato plants are still small...and not really doing much. Ditto on the pepper and eggplant.

Hi ya hey teach,

A poke man eh. Never see much of it until I see a few mature plants, which of course by then are deadly toxic. Anyhow, that's the way to do it son.

Hi happehart,

What he means is pokeweed(Phytolacca Americana) as a pot herb. I am not sure sallet is a great choice of word now but its an old word that means cooked greans. The very young plants under 6-8 inches that lack red in the stems are boiled several times to make them safe to eat. A (raw)salad just might kill you. I have yet to make it myself but its supposed to be the best of cooked greens. Its certainly one of the more curious and controversial of foods.
