The Maligned Dandelion

Dandelions

Maybe it’s odd that I’m not bothered by a few dandelions in my lawn.  Given the alternative of spraying my lawn with anti-organic compounds, a few flowers are a welcome alternative.  But gourmands as well as gardeners can take pride in this hardy, resilient plant that many call a weed.  Real Epicurean (where the photo’s from) has noted several culinary options.   Or make coffee.  If you’re still in doubt of what dandelion can do- check out a dandelion cooking contest!
