And so we come upon the letter D…hmmm
Dandelion you say? Why in the world would I include a weed in my ABC book?
Well, it’s like this, ask any kid what is one of the most fun things to do during summer and they may tell you that blowing on a dandelion puff is right up there with catching fireflies (or as we called them when we were kids, Lightening bugs)
Besides the fun factor, there is also a nutritional plus with dandelions. Yes, you can eat the leaves and the flowers too! Although I have never tried them, I have heard that they are tasty. It is good to know that if I had to-- there is something right in my front yard (that I can easily identify) and eat.
So I I’m sure you can guess that I will never use weed killer of any kind on my lawn. It may never be golf course perfect but it is green and green is good.
