Not being “fortunate” to have a Meadow nearby with wild flowers growing like crazy, I ordered packets of dandelion seeds. I started them a couple of weeks ago and now the sprouts look almost ready to transplant outside. The plan?
Dandelion salad of course! Those not sure what I’m talking about, this is a reference to The Hunger Games, when Katniss realizes how her family will survive starvation.
Didn’t know that you can eat dandelions? Neither did I, until I read that book. I always thought it was just a pesky weed with a pretty flower. People who have a hard time getting rid of them must think I’m insane for purposely introducing them to my yard, but I just have to know what it tastes like. Growth time is quick, so I should be able to harvest some greens within a month.
