The name comes from the French word, “dent de lion”.
The leaves are like Lion’s teeth…
Lions are beyond amazing and they live here with us. For now.
The dandelion is a plant that has the longest flowering season of all plants; it’s seeds can travel five miles.
Earth is trying. You try too. Please hear me.
A human can dig it out but if they miss one bit of the tap root, it will grow again.
How are you going to tackle Dandelions from five miles away? Why try?
Who cares? Or maybe why care is better.?
Dandelion Super Powers Let It Be…
I LOVE THIS PLANT!
Dandelion immigrants are interfering with your idea of the perfect yard. The one you only venture into to kill the dandelions. The one you think about. The Yard. Look for ant hills. Avoid your life. Avoid your wife. Wake up.
Well. This whole plant is edible and filled with vitamins. Raw or cooked. The smallest leaves are the sweetest for a salad but the bigger ones can be sautéed like spinach.
I have not breaded and fried the flowers but I hear it’s great and have done that to mushrooms so what is weirder?
IT IS that big stubborn taproot that holds so much for us. ❤️
I credit dandelion tea mixed with other more yummy teas for helping me heal from the Tick diseases.
The Anaplasmosis got into every organ in my body and made Lymes seem like a common cold.
I could really do nothing but sit in the lazy boy and look stuff up on the iPad. Cold sweat. Luckily Zuzu had my back.
Geez people who get dogs see it…
Bummer for those that don’t.🙏
Dandelion roots can be dried and added to anything like stir fry or pot roast.
Also: mmm wine! Yep it’s a thing and I will try it and let you know. ;). It takes four months. We’ll see.
Science factual facts: Taraxacum officinale. Any plant that has the second Latin name, officinale was historically used for medicine before God created pharmacy.
Here we go…
Gathered early, the leaves stimulate and clean out the intestines. Eat them in salad or sauté.
The root, while not delicious, helps your liver cleanse your blood.
Just get the tea and mix it with other tea and you will feel so clean on the inside…
I want this for you!
Details: leaves are rich in calcium and vitamins A,C,K and B2.
Your liver is responsible for cleaning everything from your blood; all the car exhaust, paint fumes, drugs and alcohol, and many other toxins that are left to your liver to deal with….
Hey kids Dandelions are truly the best support for your liver. Like did you even know?
So. Maybe just grab a box of this tea and pick another one in the same aisle that is easily more delicious and boil and steep and try.
Please don’t be like ick it’s bitter and I won’t do it…add sugar if you want.
Add it to your Diet Coke. It is literally the one tea that will improve your body and if you don’t believe me Google it.
You gotta know I’m on your side…
However, on behalf of the dandelions you see here and there and everywhere, please see health and resource and I don’t hurt your feet and your kids have fun making necklaces with me. ( dandelion voice).
Don’t go for chemicals.
I have no idea why it’s all under lined. Maybe someone thinks it’s important?
My love to you. ❤️
