Portulaca oleracea sativa
Also known as little hogweed, pigweed, fatweed, and pusley, considered a nutritional powerhouse. Prostrate bushfood plant grown for its spicy leaves and stems. Grows in arid and temperate climates and is very hardy. Small yellow flowers in summer. Doesn’t like too much water.
The leaves, stems, flowers, and seeds are considered edible, either raw or cooked. Can be eaten raw in salads or steamed like spinach, a great bush tucker alternative. The seeds can also be collected and ground into a paste for cooking.
Note: Can become a weed so consider growing in containers either as a plant or as microgreen sprouts.

Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
