The poke weed is plentiful around here this year. This herb is used by some locals as a cure all for everything. Also makes a great salad. It's the poke salad mentioned in the song by Tony Joe White. The berries when ripe can also be used for ink.

I didn't realize it was a weed Dennis, never had it but we saw Elvis sing Polk Salad Annie in person a couple of times back in the day. Nice shot, here is the Polk Salad we are familiar with:
