More on Purslane and a Peek at the Garden
Topic: Garden

More on Purslane and a Peek at Garden Progress

 


Last week I showed you the “before” salad and forgot to insert a picture of the salad “all jazzed up” with herbs and purslane So, to take a step back:


Before—basic tossed salad:


 

 



After—the fresh herbs- basil, cilantro and purslane are added and tossed thoroughly (40 times, remember the rules?)

 

 


 

 



I'd like to show you how that looks on the dinner plate—roast pork, quinoa with spinach and carrots, and the lovely herb, lettuce, tomato and onion salad.




Now, back to the garden check at about 6 weeks post seeding...



 

 



I mentioned that purslane might be a good “cover crop”--and why not? They seem to have taken hold around the squash plants. And, as we discussed last week, there's no reason to weed something as healthy as purslane. Notice my beautiful summer squash. And the purslane, see it growing between the squash plants?


 


Here are my multi varieties of kale greens and next to be written about.
