If someone tells you that Dandelions are merely a weed, don’t believe them! And whatever you do, don’t spray those Dandelions with chemicals to get rid of them! Dandelions are not weeds – they are edible and delicious. And they are packed full of nutrients! Want to start cooking with Dandelions? Take a look at my ebook – Delicious Dandelions: A Recipe Collection.
The health benefits of the lowly Dandelion are quite astounding – take a look at just some of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients found in these plants. Read about just how good Dandelion Greens are for you to be eating! And they are free. And they are probably in your yard every Spring.
I spent years (in the distant past) spraying my lawn to get rid of weeds and this included Dandelions. What on earth was I thinking? That was when I was doing everything I could to have a beautiful lawn – you know, one that is green, lush and weed free. That was before I realized just how bad it is to be spraying chemicals to get rid of those weeds.
Now, I don’t even want a beautiful lush green lawn. I want a lawn that is healthy enough that it crowds out those weeds. But I do want some Dandelions. And since we never use chemicals here on anything growing, I know I can safely pick those Dandelions and start cooking with them!
