Miners Lettuce

Miners Lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata)

They start as little "spades"...

..and grow into a full circle.

Miners Lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata) grows abundantly here on the property. It likes cool, damp locations, and thrives here in the late winter and spring. It tastes a bit like spinach, and I like it raw in salads or on a sandwich instead of regular lettuce.
