    Oh, I just Hate dandelions! Especially the kind with the tall stalks the flowers are on. I swear they’re yellow one day, and the next, when you are ready to mow them down, they’re seeds flying All Over The Place! ;P

    Dig them up and eat them! One cup has 500% of your vitamin K. In the good-ole-days dandelion was known by physicians as “the official remedy for disorders,” and was incorporated into the U.S. Pharmacopoeia as a broad spectrum tonic and diuretic medicine in 1831. There it remained as an important part of the American pharmacy for nearly 100 years.

    Dandelions are one of nature’s richest green vegetable sources of beta-carotene, from which vitamin A. They are also a very good source of fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, thiamine and riboflavin. Sodium and vitamins C and D are also present.

    And, they are free and grow in many places as a weed.

    It is intriguing that all those vitamins and minerals et al come from my lawn. A quick recipe look found lots of recommendations that “leaves should be gathered before the plant blooms as they will become increasingly bitter and tough.”

    My Grandmother used to feed dandelion blades to her canary. The bird loved them.

    “Quick…Make a wish…”
    Ok, I wish Red had sprayed with Weed-B-Gon or dug before the darn things seeded out. Now, there billions of dandy seeds just looking for a new home.

    Timing is everything…

    What’s the bag for? The weeds I guess?

    When I was a kid, I absolutely hated picking weeds. Now, I actually like picking weeds but am finding it harder to do because of my back.

    You are so right….but I have to admit that since I was a kid when I used to find a dand. puff….I’d blow on it and made a wish while all of those little puffy things took flight…I still do…Oh well…I know, not good…
