Weeds We Love and Weeds We Love to Hate

On our rooftop garden, we find a surprising amount of plants growing wild – seeds have an incredible ability to travel (even to a rooftop)!

Some of the plants we find growing on our rooftop garden we do not love and try to weed as soon as we see them, like this one:


Others, we feel pretty lucky to have cultivated themselves (especially if they are edible)! Pictured here is purslane which is commonly consumed in the Mediterranean – usually eaten raw in salads, cooked in soups, or pickled in vinegar. Purslane grows wild all over the world – check out the photos from when I found it growing on my trip to Italy here.


As weeds pop up on our rooftop garden, we’ll continue to add to this list!
