weedy wednesday – mallow

Malva neglecta – via aphotoflora.com

our little weedy mallow looks even more insignificant than this, it’s flowers even smaller. supposed to be another one of the nutritional powerhouse weeds. we just started eating it this summer : mild flavour, like a mild cucumber almost, very similar to violet leaves, but less strong to my taste.
