Dandelions are everywhere in my yard. This is what it looked like when we got back from a weekend trip.
We don't use a weed killer on them because it is so bad for the environment.
Last year, my Hubs was working outside in our yard and a lady rode by on her bike. She stopped and started telling my Hubs that she has cancer and everyone around this area uses weed killer. She was quite upset. My Hubs said to her " I don't use weed killer. Look at my weeds"
I really should go out and dig the roots and make dandelion tea because it is so good for the liver and gallbladder. Using dandelion as part of your daily diet may prevent and cure jaundice, hepatitis, purify the blood and cleanse the system. It is also used to prevent kidney stones. I may help with constipation and gastro intestinal problems. Some people use it to prevent or control diabetes and others use it to fight cancer. It is a Spring Tonic.
