Purslane - A Good Weed??
My garden is overflowing with Purslane. It wasn't until a few years ago that my husband helped me discover this delicious weed - yes I said weed. Purslane is a very fast-growing weed that can take over your garden but now, whenever I weed my garden I make sure that I am having a salad for lunch or dinner and I include a few Purslane leaves. Purslane has a mild green lemony flavor and tastes great in any garden salad. Most importantly, Purslane is actually good for you - I am not a nutritionist but my husband tells me that Purslane is high in vitamin E and Omega-3 fatty acid.
WARNING: If you are not absolutely sure if you have Purslane growing in your garden then Don't take a chance on eating something that might resemble these pictures!
