Poke! Guess what - yep, I have that too wink Butterflies seem to like it, and it gets berries that feed the birds in fall/winter I believe...so I let a few hang around in the back.

poke salad, you can eat the leaves like greens but that's got too tall already, it'd be tough now when cooked

And you have to cook the young one's *leaves*
twice, boil, then dump the water, then refill
and re~boil again!!!!!
