Purslane is found all over North America, but is particularly prevalent here in our area. It is delicious and super nutritious and deserve attention for those who want to embrace sustainable permaculture. These are hardy plants. They require little work on our part. What more do you want?
They even are high in omega fatty acids. So no need to buy expensive supplements.
I typically get purslane popping up in my potted plants, and I just let it live along with my flowers or other seedlings. Go ahead and give it a try. Here is a youtube link to some ideas of how to identify and eat purslane. https://youtu.be/aYVOqBh_pZ4
