They ate dandelions years ago and collected them to eat. A lot of people still eat dandelions.

Dandelion root has been collected and used for thousands of years as medicine. Today, you can still buy supplements made of dandelion root at any healthfood store and online. Many people take dandelionroot several times a day. People used to and still sell the roots for money.

My mom still makes salads out of the leaves in the spring. She's been making wine out of the flowers forever.


Eh...wot?

Some seed companies sell dandelion seeds. Some people think a lawn full of them is attractive, I guess. Here they are treated like an invasive species.


Diapers and most politicians should be changed often both for the same reason.

My Grandmother would make dandelion salad every spring, we had to pick the greens for her. She wanted only greens with no flowers, as she said once they flower they get more bitter (as if they aren't bitter enough). The only thing that made it edible to me was her hot bacon dressing.

I think of Crocodile Dundee "You can live on it, but it tastes like sh__!"

My mom makes the same salad now but uses endive lettuce instead of dandelion greens, and that is delicious.

Bears absolutely love them in the spring.
Stalked and killed many a bear in the dandilions.
They eat the flowers,and their lips mouth and gums are stained yellow.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Dandelions are supposedly very healthy for you both as food and as tea. I wouldn't go pick them from lawns or parks. Tea is used medicinally. Eaten used for vitamins and minerals

I made a batch of mead with dandelions and honey. It was good. I guess they never bothered me in a lawn.

That is a cat toter.
Use y'all's imagination on how to secure the cat to it.
The handle is for hanging on to for spinning it overhead like a lasso. The pull knob is the quick release, like when you're trying to see if the draft under the cabin door is big enough to sling a dead cat through.
