Wild Garlic
Allium vineale

Depending on who's description you read, this is sometimes called wild onion and sometimes wild garlic. It is much more a garlic than an onion. The plant grows in grassy-looking clumps. The leaves are wiry, round and hollow. It seeds prolifically. I have pickled it with vinegar and cinnamon sticks.

Devil's Trumpet
Datura wrightii

Datura commonly changes its appearance depending on its location, so distinguishing Datura wrightii from Datura intoxia can be tricky, but I've concluded to the best of my research that this is Datura wrightii.

Black Walnut
Juglans nigra

In my area, I only know of one black walnut that has the very small nuts. The rest of the black walnut trees (very widespread here) are the very large nuts (slightly larger than a golf ball) which I think are actually Eastern black walnut.

I gathered a handful of fruit late October 2010 and it will take some time for the fruit and seeds to dry, possibly a long time. Very limited supply.

Long-Leafed Groundcherry
Physalis longifolia

There are many varieties of physalis/groundcherry. This is the tomatillo-like variety and not the round fruity type like the wild variety that grows in my area.
