I have been growing marjoram from seed since late March, and it's been doing well. That said, mixed in amongst the marjoram is this plant:
This is what the marjoram looks like:
They're clearly different plants. Marjoram has small, delicate oregano-looking leaves and a lighter colour, and the stem is thin and white to pinkish. It grows upward.
My mystery plant has a thick, reddish stem, flat waxy leaves that are more oval-shaped and a much darker shade of green. It also seems to grow low and outward as opposed to upward. It also has seed pods in the middle.
So, what is it? Goodness only knows what was mixed in with the seeds I bought. I'm really curious as to what this is, though.
Thank you to Jaidynsmum for our awesome banner and my fabulous siggie!
I posted it to Facebook too and had a friend tell me that it's called purslane. I guess you can eat it if you'd like, but yeah, it is a weed. I was mostly checking because I use the marjoram to cook with and I wanted to be sure that I didn't grab one of those leaves accidentally and poison us.
