Urban Chickweed

I wanted to share something that brings me a smile every day. As my co-worker facetiously said, “If you want grass to grow in your yard, put down concrete.” This little patch of thriving chickweed grows at the entrance to my apartment building.

I wish I could pick some for chickweed pesto or to use in a salad, but I’ve learned not to wildcraft near roads because of exhaust and toxic runoff. It still makes me happy to see it doing so well, growing out of a crack in the pavement.
