What are the pros? Easy reseeder, happy grower
What are the cons? Potentially invasive
This does have a low germination rate from purchased seed, but I had hundreds of seedlings the following spring from a plant left in the garden. It is considered an invasive in coastal regions in California, so grow with care. It is very similar to tumbleweed, which is also higly edible when young.
I use it in the salad mix and lightly sauteed as greens, nice lightly sour flavor when raw.
