Chickweed

Chickweed (Stellaria media)

This tiny, delicate and slightly succulent herb is blanketing gardens and lawns all over Texas right now. All of the above ground parts are edible – chop it up and add it to your salads!

I hope we see this herb on the wild edible plant walk I am doing this Sunday at Zilker Botanical Gardens. Come join me and the green garden folks at the City of Austin for the Green Garden Festival this weekend!
