Today I was looking at this great video from Garden Fork on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAtGrCIyec0
As soon as I saw the close-up of this ‘weed’ called Purslane, a medicinal wild herb with super nutritional properties, it was a huge ‘AHA!’ moment for me. That is the weed that has cropped up all through our gardens; practically laying a carpet around everything planted. I had a feeling when I was weeding this plant that I shouldn’t be. I wanted to know what it was, but sometimes it’s hard to identify a plant from the wild. Is this weed going to leech away all the soil nutrients so my cultivated plants suffer?
I always learn better when someone shows me. I’m so grateful to all the youtubers out there posting videos of wild edibles plants!
