Will and Thea had a Fathers Day Special going on with their candles and men’s soaps. Those soaps were black tie and fifty shades. Tassy and Jason only done it in time for a whistle. They had cookies, spin overs, home done popsicles, pecan rolls and smiling faces. And holding adult a marketplace on a North finish was Kris with Red Earth Gardens. He had transplants, kale, bok choy, kohlrabi, spinach, and purslane. IF we haven’t been to a Toledo Farmers Market we improved get out there on Friday nights from 5-7 p.m. on a easterly side of a building square.

Is purslane, a weed, or juicy treat? In my garden it is a pesty weed. Though we have never attempted it, so it competence be a juicy treat.

If we are not certain what purslane looks like, it has obese tender leaves and stems with yellow flowers. It looks like a baby mount plant. he stems lay prosaic on a belligerent as they illuminate from a singular taproot, infrequently combining a rather vast pad of leaves.

Purslane leaves have some-more omega-3 greasy acids than in some fish oils. It is low in calories and fats. t is abounding in dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. If we are looking to squeeze some, buy uninformed and healthy looking purslane. Look for mold, yellow or dim spots as they prove defective quality. Wash a leaves and branch in purify cold using water. Then dry with a soothing cloth to mislay any dampness before we store it in a refrigerator. You can keep it for about 3-4 days. But purslane is best eaten when a leaves are uninformed and not wilted.

You can use a uninformed tender m going to have to give it a try. See we during market.
