PURSLANE

February

The Slowpoke: PURSLANE Be wary of where you walk and you may just spot this tasty edible green at your feet. Known quite commonly as a weed in Australia, purslane is in fact a great addition to the plate, and in many cultures and countries embraced wholeheartedly as a food. Here, awareness of the plant is growing and you may even spot it these days at a farmers market stall or two.

The Slowpoke: A PLOT IN COMMON No matter how little your prior experience is, often the desire to do something is all you need to do it well.
