Hi Sharon, The pokeweed story just reminded me of the Holly plant that has red berries that are not supposed to be edible. Are there any similarities between these two plants? My garden space is now bare so I am thinking about getting out there and digging up the soil to mold my leaves and grass clipppings some more to cultivate the soil for planting this year. The rain is coming down today with the sun still on vacation somewhere.

I don't know of any similarities between the two, Alan. The poke berries are soft and smushy, though, unlike holly berries.

Hope your rains clear up soon, we've had rain today too, thunderstorms, horrendous ones.

Thanks for reading the article!
