Notes:

I dug up some liriope to put in another spot and this plant sprouted up in it. I am curious what kind of plant it is.

    It better! Looks like poke salad, Phytolacca americana. This plant has grown a little large for the table. As I recall grandaddy used the leaves from a 6 to 8 inch plant, The following sounds close to his recipe.
