This week, we’re making the most of the sun by cultivating and weeding the last of the fall and winter crops. It’s the last busy week of the season. Personally, I’m looking for a break. It’s been a rough summer, with not enough hands for all the work.

So, a quick post to talk about purslane, because everything else should be self explanatory.

It’s a tangy, succulent green that is delicious and nutritious! High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, it’s great in a mixed salad, but I like it Persian style, with cucumbers, tomatoes, dill, and sometimes yogurt.

Here are a couple of links with even more ideas.
