It is currently springtime in the United States, which means it is the perfect time to harvest poke salad (sallet) or pokeweed. This means you can have this nutritious vegetable for cheap, or even free if you are able to harvest on your own property or have a friend that doesn’t mind you foraging on their property. Pokeweed has a finite time that is ideal for harvesting for consumption, so don’t wait too much longer to get your hands on some pokeweed.
