    I remember buying a book as a kid called “Legal Highs” that said scotch broom (or hogweed, for British Isle folks) could take you places, but you had to put the flowers in a sealed jar until mold formed first. Between that and the potential adverse reactions, I never had the nerve to try.

    I could be pretty stupid at 18 or 19 but even though the scotch broom was limitless, I wasn’t.

    Just don’t sell me any bermuda grass. That still makes me sneeze until I almost bleed.

    I refer to “the weeds” (pun not intended) which makes everyone laugh, which makes me keep saying it.

    “Dandelions are thought to have evolved about 30 million years ago in Eurasia. Fossil seeds of Taraxacum tanaiticum have been recorded from the Pliocene of southern Russia. Dandelions have been used by humans for food and as an herb for much of recorded history. They were well known to ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, and are recorded to have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over a thousand years. The plant was used as food and medicine by Native Americans. Dandelions probably arrived in North America on the Mayflower—not as stowaways, but brought on purpose for their medicinal benefits.” Take a wild guess where I found this!

    Apparently, according to some I’ve seen on the news lately, ALL laws are an infringement on my personal liberty, so I get to do whatever I want, and it doesn’t matter if it hurts you. But YOU have to do things my way.

    I remember being shocked (and angered) when I first heard someone call dandelions a weed. Growing up, it was my favorite “flower” and I would even pick some for my mom and grandmother.

    Our yard caretaker seems to be one of these. Gave me a l-o-o-o-o-ng diatribe on how a cop can’t really stop you for speeding because, according to the Constitution, there must be a habeas corpus. Since there’s no habeas corpus, the cop has no legal right to stop you. . .or something like that. Think I’ll just send him a link to this cartoon and tell him to stick to crabgrass or dandelion stuff. . .

    Many years ago in my old Italian neighborhood the old lady next door would go to the adjacent park to pick dandelion greens she would give them to my mom to cook, they tasted like bitter spinach.

    Dandelions have another real value. A field of them is beautiful. One summer I walked out the front door and saw a three acre field of dandelions in bloom. Later the wind blew a river of white fluff down along the creek bank. Stunning. Decades later, I still wonder why anyone would think a flat green lawn was a better choice.

    Make sure to save some seeds and ship them to random recipients in China.

    I like the fact that the word dandelion comes from the french “dents du lion” — teeth of the lion, which is what the leaves look like.

    Don’t need to pay to get them. They come all by themselves. However, I have spent much money trying to get rid of them. Not very successfully.

    Seems like a racket to me. You probably have to pay him so that he won’t give them to you.

    Off and on through history dandelions have been known as favored crops and as a food additive and also staple. Weed or food, who is the judge?

    If these weeds affect your consciousness, the government can tell what you can’t sell.

    They have no govt. but the machine educators have told them about the types of govts that have existed since the beginning of recorded history. The fabricators help them with tools.

    I like the tiny leafed spurge we get here, when it spreads from a crack in the pavement the summer heat turns it all ruddy pink and gray-green. Just wish it wasn’t quite so invasive. Still better than the blasted bermuda grass.
