Betty's Garden

My friend Betty loves her garden! Isn't it beautiful?

And her dirt grows one of my favorite wild foods, common purslane.

I came home with enough plants for 13 servings. Ate 2, 4 in the fridge, 7 in the freezer. Yummy! This is the pile after washing.


And she gave me some new potatoes, too. Aren't I blessed?

We've been enjoying purslane this year. We've had it steamed and raw. Which way do you prefer?

Lin- she's amazing. I've given up on garden.

Chuck- lightly boiled (steamed would be the same). Topping for potato or rice. Or just as a green.

She does have a beautiful garden. I would love to have one but I would need someone else to take care of it for me. It's just too much work and I don't have much of a green thumb. I've never has purslane. As a matter of fact I've never even heard of it before
