Herbs in the PNW? Either native, introduced, or invasive

I’m curious if there are any herbs that grow wild in the PNW. I’m more interested in native ones as I’m starting my own native plant garden, but I’d also love to hear introduced species too, especially ones that can be found in the city so I can go foraging easily

finding a mystery berry/fruit

I need your help, because my friend needs to find a berry/fruit he remembers from his childhood in Jamaica.

the description is.. (these might have slight variations due to long time since he ate them)

-tiny -hairy -purple -smelly -the interior is light colored and grainy -it grows on a thigh height bush -it apparently tastes a bit tart with sweetness -the seed are soft

-also apparently some called the berry "chicken feet" or something similar, because of the smell

-he said it's not a guinep, lychee nor a rambutan.

Are thistle roots still good to eat in the second year of growth after flowering?

A sneaker thistle got huge behind the playhouse in my backyard. I'm interested in trying eating the root, but everything seems to say to eat it between the 1st and second year, not at the end of the second year. Will it still taste ok? I cut the stalk down before the flowers opened because I don't want to spread the invasive seeds all over the neighborhood. I plan to try to dig out the root within a few days

White Chicken of the Woods Bad Reaction

Alrighty! I successfully identified a beautiful white pored chicken of the woods growing on an oak root. I sadly am learning that I may not be able to eat it. I have consumed 20+ other foraged mushrooms, but COW has consistently given me intense vertigo, confusion, and nausea. When I had yellow COW I puked and had vertigo for days. I tried a small amount of white COW and got dizzy and hot, but no tummy problems. I'm just confused why I can consume all other mushrooms, but COW. Anyone had any similar experiences? Any insight?

Help I need to find a mushroom book

Hi I really need help from fellow mushroom nerds, I'm looking to gift my boyfriend (who really likes mushrooms) a book about mushrooms, but not necessarily a guide to foraging but a book that discusses lots of mushrooms and go's into detail about them instead of just general appearance and whether you can eat them or not. I was looking and I found the Peterson mushroom field Guide, but again I want something that goes more into detail about them, like what they are best known for and what the mushroom helps with in health wise

If anyone knows a book that fits this very specific description, please send it my way!! Itll be very much appreciated

I have seen these or similar fruits I'm several different States and was wondering if they are edible. If so, are they any good?

Thinking I hit the jackpot. Is this Black cherry - prunus serotina? West central Arkansas, 30 miles south of Fort Smith.

Picture this said it was, always like a human opinion. Just identified the tree after 2 yrs at this place.

ticks in lilac blooms?

so i’m not sure if this is a silly question or not. i harvested some lilac blooms and washed them, then made them into a syrup. as it was cooling i noticed a (dead) tick inside, should i toss the syrup? or is it still safe to consume?
