  1. I've got a ton of those poke berries here too! I just learned from a fellow Master Gardener and bird rescue volunteer that our local bird rescue uses poke berries that have been frozen from summertime collecting as a winter food source for birds. I plan on letting them grow to produce berries, cut them off and put in a gallon zip lock baggie and take it down to the bird rescue if they need them. I'll pull the plant then because they can get HUGE around here and hard to get rid of. Birds will disperse plenty more seeds for next year 🙂

  2. You know Lori, a few years ago i bought these mini pumpkins for potpourri and I always wondered how they got them so small, I'll bet this is them! I wonder if they age and dry if they turn orange? Love the shot!

  3. I adore weeds…..I have quite a lovely crop too. thanks Marsha for letting us know what they are. When I was in Dad's garden this morning his potato plant had a tomato looking fruit on it…didn't know that happened.

  4. Isn't it amazing what we can find that we call 'weeds'I've found some beautiful plants in the wild that I can't believe their gorgeousness. And yes, I totally thought those were some kind of little pumpkins. COOL!

  5. I've always thought the colors of these plants were pretty, but I didn't know what they were. I certainly didn't know they were weeds. I'll have to start saving some of the berries to put out in the winter.
