A weed you can eat!
Wild purslane, Portulaca oleracea, can be a frustrating weed that likes to pop up in cracks in the driweway, sidewalk and gravel pathways. It is a succulent trailing or creeping plant that thrives in poor soil. So if you have a lot of purslane coming up in your landscape, chances are your soil is nutrient deficient and compacted.
While considered a weed, did you know purslane is also edible? It is often harvested for use in salads or as a cooked vegetable and is high in omega-3 fatty acids.
