Day 100 of 365 days in the community garden

Sorrel is an underused leafy green that should feature in everyone's garden. These lemony sour leaves grow prolifically (so only grow it in an area of your garden where it won't take over your other plants, or grow it in a pot). The leaves can be eaten raw or cooked, and make a great soup when cooked with potato. Don't eat vast quantities of these leaves though due to high levels of oxalates, but you are pretty safe chopping up a few into a mixed salad or stir fry.
"In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy." William Blake
