Grow dandelion!


Growing dandelion is super cheap and is so good for you! Try it in summer salads or stir-fries! When you buy it from a farmer’s market or the store it costs something like $2, and it goes bad if you don’t eat it in a week. But when you grow it yourself, it grows constantly, like a weed. It doesn’t go bad in the ground, so there is no pressure to use it up, and you can get the exact amount you want. Plus it looks pretty and it is soooooo good for you!

If you haven’t eaten dandelion before, here are a couple of ways to try it:

  • Put 4 or 5 leaves (chopped or cut in large pieces) into a salad
  • Stir-fry it with other greens and serve warm

Have fun experimenting, and let me know if you invent any yummy new dandelion dishes along the way!
