The dandelions are growing!


The pic above are dandelion greens which you can eat and use for medicinal purposes.  This pic is from Johnny's selected seeds.  Some farmers are growing them for crops now and the crop is being sold in specialty markets all across the United States.  

Peter Gail, an economic botany professor at Cleveland State University has found that dandelion greens have 50% more vitamin C than tomatoes, twice as much protein as eggplant and double the fiber of asparagus. They have as much iron as spinach and more potassium than bananas.

It gives one a sudden start in going down a barren, stony street, to see upon a narrow strip of grass, just within the iron fence, the radiant dandelion, shining in the grass, like a spark dropped from the sun.
~ Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887)
