Does anyone eat the flowers or fruit of red elderberry, Sambucus
racemosa? Fruit is bitter. I bought one more than 20 years ago.
Nursery said it was the edible kind of elderberry. I didn't know
better. Started spreading and I cut them down every year but they
survived. I have a big one next to my house that is thriving and I
gave up extermination and accept it. Black elderberries here die to
the ground in winter and feebly grow back and give just a few
berries. Not as hardy as red.

Walleye fishing was great today.
