Post-rain purslane

July 23rd, 2013

Quoting a post from last summer:

Purslane is both a "noxious weed" that enjoys taking over Staten Island traffic medians [or, in this case, Queens sidewalks] and a "superfood" that can be found on the menu at high-end restaurants.

Also, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that the Malawian name for this fleshy, succulent plant translates to "the buttocks of the wife of a chief".
