It wasn't until last year that I learned the Purslane is edible! And people really do grow and harvest it. Really!? You mean this weed that invades my gardens every year is something some people allow to grow to eat!? Seriously! I even noticed it being SOLD at Farmer's Markets!!
With all the rain we've had, it popped up and INVADED my herb garden last week. And as I started pulling, I decided, maybe I need to cut the Purslane some slack. Maybe I should let some of it stick around.
But, I have yet to actually try it. I could imagine my husbands face if I served him up a nice side of Purslane for dinner.
Herb Mother does a Purslane Pierogi - sounds interesting. She has a photo essay on it too.
If you do a google image search for Purslane, it acutally looks pretty...like something you would want to plant in your garden!
So, how about you? Do you love or loathe Purslane? Do you let it grow...hang around in your garden? Do you harvest it? Tell me, how do you feel about Purslane?
