Purslane

Portulaca oleracea. You may have heard that you can eat the weedy Purslane in your garden. You can! It's incredibly nutritious (high in vitamin A, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids and more), and can be used as a substitute for Spinach in so many ways, both raw and lightly cooked. Not lucky enough to have this tasty weed in your garden? Grow it from seed! Purslane loves baking sun and lean soil. Direct-sow seeds ¼” deep and 3” apart well after the last frost date when the soil is reliably warm. Thin seedlings to 6 to 8 inches apart. Water regularly until established, after which Purslane is quite drought-tolerant. Harvest sprigs throughout the season when young and tender and cool them quickly. Purslane will store well in the fridge for about a week. Average seed life: 3 years.
