Wild Spinach + Purslane

Be on the lookout for wild spinach and purslane popping up in and around your gardens and compost piles. These are two of the very best wild greens. They are packed with vitamins and minerals, are easy to find and are tasty even when it gets hot and the plants start flowering and going to seed. Eat them raw or cooked - I love to add a few leaves to my summer smoothies.

Wild Spinach or Lamb's Quarter (Chenopodium album)

Purslane (Portulaca oleracea)
