This is Paraguayan purslane.  This is a prostrate growing weed with thick, fleshy leaves.  We usually find this weed in sandy areas.  Its close relative, common purslane can be a big pest in agricultural fields.  For more info take a look at this page.

 

Here is this week’s question:  What is going on in this microscope photo of some squash bug eggs?
