Warrigal Greens (Tetragonia tetragonioides) grows like a weed in our climate

Warrigal Greens plants are always popping up and spreading around and in my garden beds. It loves our climate. It loves well drained soil, water, heat and humidity but also grows well in dry weather. When you have this growing you will never be short of a useful green vegetable. BUT....you must cook it because of its high Oxalic Acid content.
