We have been enjoying beautiful weather this week. I have been trying to get outside and do some gardening. This time of year flowers and green plants are starting to sprout up and it’s exciting!! However, there is one colourful flower that isn’t so welcome, especially on our new lawn that we put in last year.
Dandelions! Hmm? Yep, those pretty yellow (flowers) weeds that pop up overnight on your lawn.
When we were living in China, we ate them! They were actually quite delicious. Ladies would spend hours in the parks gathering dandelion greens. And then cook them up. Maybe like we do fiddleheads here. Or…dandelion tea? It’s supposed to have many health benefits.
But here at home, we collect them…by the bucket full… BUT more because they are a weed invading our lawns.
My husband wants them GONE!!!! So we go outside and pull them out by the root…a little bit everyday. BUT We may have to rethink this a bit… Check out this site.
