32. Ah, pokeweed.
I tried it for the first time a couple of years ago. It's not something that is normally eaten up here, but it grows abundantly all the Detroit area.

I loved it. To me, it has the flavor of asparagus and the texture of spinach. Wonderful used any way one would use spinach.

I had them growing as weeds in my garden and fought them for a number of years. After I found out how tasty they are, I actually dug a number of the roots and put them in their own little bed. I do make sure, though, that I cut the berry-laden tops off before the fruits ripen, otherwise the birds spread the seeds and millions sprout in the spring.
