If these were hard to grow, my yard would be the envy of the neighborhood.

If these were hard to grow they would be prized by gardeners around the globe.

They are not, they are a weed.

  1. When I stopped by the park where my kids were playing this afternoon, Guenevere had a dozen dandelions in her hair.

    • Really, what do you use them for. I’ve tried eating the green, it must be an acquired taste and I haven’t acquired it yet.

      • I add the dried leaves to my herbal tea mixture. The leaf has a lot of vitamins and minerals in it and is said to be good for liver cleansing, pancreas, spleen, and as a blood purifier.

  2. When I was ten years old, since we didn’t spray our dandelions, my mother taught me how to pick the flowers, wash them, roll them in cornmeal and fry them in vegetable oil and add salt and pepper. So-so results, but it was a new food group I could brag about to my friends.
