The black nightshade post

I was just out for a stroll to keep the blood flowing nicely through me veins - I had some varicose veins removed the other day so I'm all bandaged up and it is good to walk a lot. Anyhow, while exploring some parts of the MGH campus that I hadn't gone to yet, I walked by a black nightshade plant with black berries fully ripe and ready to go. Complete trust in the authoritative Sam Thayer on the plant and I popped them right in, and he is correct, they are great, and they taste just like ground cherries. I've been excited to write this post for a long time as I've been eyeing the plants come to maturity this whole summer. A google search on something like "black nightshade poisoning" is a fun way to waste some time on the web. It's amazing what people will say on a topic they have no knowledge of.



Weekend on the cape, mom and I enjoyed a great fully foraged salad.


I am considering doing a post on the vein surgery, but that might gross out my 20 readers, so, we'll see.

That salad looks delicious! I like that you shaved and fried the burdock root. I see your book is out, will definitely be biking over to the Harvard Book Store to pick up a copy!

Wow, David, you are courageous to eat those berries. Where in the plant is the atropine and scopolamine if not in the berries?
