i hadnt either. a few weeks ago i noticed an odd, but very attractive weed growing in my garden where my sis in law had sprayed weed killer. it looked like this.
i thought they were pretty, but had no idea what they were. so, i dug them up and put them in my flower bed. last night i was googling and decided to try to identify this plant. not knowing what keywords to use it was a tough battle lol. but i finaly figured out what it is.. Purslane. and WHAT A TREASURE I HAVE FOUND.
this stuff is amazing. its regarded as a weed, but its extremely nutritious. aside from being a lovely plant to look at, its very tasty and has more vitamins and nutrients than many other vegetables!! its hardy, durable, and tolerates bad soil and even weed killer lol.
WHY do ppl consider this plant a weed?? im going to start cultivating this, and enjoying it in my diet for years to come. what a treasure. Nature is full of treasures, everyone. make sure you look around now and then
