Just wondering what all kinds of wild edibles can be found here in southern ok. I know we have poke salad but what else. Any berries?

Never eat "poke salad" raw. It can kill you. You have basically the same plants as Texas. Here's a site:

Default Wild edibles

I live in oklahoma And these are all common edibles I use, one that didn't get mentioned was black Mustard.
The leaves are good in salads but can have a very strong taste and the seeds can be used as a spice if you are willing to collect them.

I'm from Tulsa and here's a list of some of the things I can find around here: choke cherries, lambsquarter, dandelions, blackberries, elderberries and one most miss - water lily roots. Call up your local county extension office, they probably have a booklet that will help and check the local library. Tons of info there.

It's a shame that the last poke sallet canning factory here in Arkansas closed 10 or so years ago.
Harlan Kentucky has a Poke Sallet Festival in June, and I think there are a bunch of others...mmmm, gotta love poke weed!

On a side note, Alabama Cooperative Extension System says no part of this plant should be eaten by a person or animal.

Glad I don't give a rip what they say. Been eating it since I was a young'un, and probably always will.

OSU has a lot of free info on which plants and at what stages of their life they are suitable to eat. They just have a ton of info and the Master Gardeners, if your area has them, are volunteers that look stuff up for you. Check out OSU's site and search edible wild food. Very interesting. Made me look, thanks.

A lot of the same ones as SW MO where I'm at...

Learn what Chickweed is - It's more widespread than Dandelions and is here fall, winter & all the way up until it gets really hot. Not a lot of calories like most greens, but vitamins & minerals for your stew pot during the parts of the year when most plants are dormant.

Henbit also has been around all winter, but much more sparsely scattered.

We have gotten down to 11, 13, 11, 9 degrees, but it always bounces back so Chickweed has stayed alive everywhere.
