Miner’s Lettuce, Cold-Hardy Greens #shorts

This lovely leafy green is called Miner’s Lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata). It is also known as Winter Purslane or Indian lettuce. Miner’s lettuce is native to western North America and commonly grown in home gardens. Claytonia is a nutrient-dense cold-hardy annual that can be grown in zones 5 and below. The succulent leaves and stems are tasty and reminiscent of spinach. The flowers are edible as well. Claytonia is considered a wild green and a self-sower, but it’s not too invasive and is easily removed as they’re shallow-rooted. We grow it in raised and in-ground beds, occasionally we get volunteer plants in random containers. It performs well in full sun, but it also does fine in part shade (in warm climates). Claytonia will thrive in most soil conditions – poor, acidic, neutral, or alkaline, but must be well-draining moist, or dry soil. Planting time: Sow seeds 4-6 weeks before your last spring frost and again from August through early fall in wide rows or in blocks (square-foot gardening). Seeds will germinate in soil temperatures of 50-55 degrees F. We allow ours to self-sow in the summer. Do you grow Claytonia? Happy Gardening!💚 ✳️Please always do your own research before consuming plants that you are unfamiliar with and consult with your physician before using them for medicinal purposes. #shorts #claytonia #minerslettuce #eatyourgreens #growfood #permaculture #organicgardening #fallgarden
