Here are the small, scroddy leaves and dirty or soft leaves and dirt, etc.
I "snapped" off the root ... broke off the root, they really didn't snap off, then rinsed the leafy group. Sometimes there were four groups to the plant. Sometimes there are forked roots.
These, although they had not bloomed had tiny blossoms wedged down in the center of the plants.
The roots are to make medicine with. The leaves are for a salad or for wilted greens, which I have not tried.
High time, huh?
