I'm soooooooooo glad there weren't three letter after that! I'm so sick of hearing about and it's only been a few weeks. I guess I'm an old fuddy duddy that doesn't see the point!

That is a gorgeous plant, but it is poisonous. I dug it up one year and put it in my garden and my garden buddies went ape on me. We are having trouble this year with wild parsnip....nasty plant that burns you if you even get near it.

Now if you will please rid me of the earworm, "Poke Salad Annie" I would appreciate it. :)

Vicki, I did bring back lots of basil from the farmers market today, and have made a test batch of pesto. I am looking forward to supper tonight! There is plenty of basil still available for other dishes. I've got got the tall stems resting in a bit of water in a large heavy glass vessel. I might try to dry some of it, too.

Thank you again for getting my engine started. xo

American pokeweed -- a beautiful plant but toxic. Yet new studies believe this plant might cure childhood leukemia? But still don't fool with this plant only under a doctor's care. -- barbara
