Joseph.... So glad your ok. That was a close call for sure. I've had a few myself. One was a reaction to Sponge mushrooms. Boy they were so good going down. I've had to call poison control just from handling a poisonous seed that had cracked open and had the powder on my hands.

Very smart the idea using the magic marker. Females, best to write on the forehead. I remember being young and my grandfather wiriting I eat red worms on the foreheads of all us kids. Took days to get that off so everywhere we went we had that saying all across the face for folks to see. Whistling Hilarious!

When I first came to live here, I would find wild nightshade plants show up occasionally. Once, I found out what they were, I would rip and throw them in the trash. Next door and I had some plants come up in places that were in the Solanum family that we knew we didn't plant and couldn't fully identify. Out and trashed they went.

I don't know if you have seen this site or not. I keep it bookmarked. The information written is way older, but I still use it as a guide. Since your just getting into herbs, medicinal and botanicals, you might find it comes in handy.
Sent the link on Night Shade, but you can click to get to the home page and see all the different plants and info.

Here is another site you might enjoy.

http://www.ediblewildfood.com/

In the first paragraph is blue links to look at pages and info of edible weeds, flowers and at the top of those pages, other links for recipes and such.

I've discovered several edible plants that I consider weeds in the yard from this site. One is Goldenrod. I have patches of it growing all over. Not only did I learn it was edible for humans, but when it is in bloom the bees work it like crazy for pollen.

Heck, if I got every plant I consider a weed in my yard I may just have enough types that I would never have to grow a regular veggie again, especially all the ones growing in the back fields. Hilarious!
