Eating of common weeds

Asked May 29, 2016, 7:51 PM EDT

When I lived in Hackensack, my mother would pick sorrel to put in salads, but there was another weed she picked that sprouted up in her fresh turned garden but I can't remember if it purslane or plantain. Can you help me with the answers?

Both, purslane and plantain are considered edible, but palatable is another

question. See:
