Pick a patch of purslane

My husband to me: “Hey, you know that weed you like to eat that you wrote about?”

Me: “You mean purslane?”

Brian: “Would you know it if you saw it? I think it’s growing in our front yard. The rabbits [wild, but cute, visitors] have been eating it.”


And so it is: Purslane! It’s moved on in, taken for its own a tiny patch of dirt, uninvited but totally welcome — in my front yard. It picked me!

I have my very own Portulaca oleracea! [sigh]
