A great day for dandelions (TNG)

[ #29573 ]

Today was a great day for dandelions, or more specifically the next generation of dandelions. This follows on from last Tuesday, which was a great day for dandelions - for some reason thousands of them decided to come into flower in the local park all on the same day. Hence today there are thousands of seed heads.

Meanwhile, Friday may not be such a great day for dandelions. My neighbour moves out, and hopefully before the new owners move in, I can reprise my role as "nemesis of dandelions" and eliminate hers from her front garden. Then again. "nemesis of dandelions" wonders if he's fighting a losing battle, particularly given the overwhelming forces stationed just ¼ mile away as the seed head drifts.

  • There were loads in Hamburg this weekend too. Get the young leaves (so they are less bitter) and make a nice salad out of them!
    • Um, I don't think so. Certainly not with the ones from the park. I know where they've been.

      Well, to be pedantic, they've not "been" anywhere else, but I know what's "been" on or near them. I'm not convinced that dog (and fox) urine and faces are the most appealing salad marinades, even if thoroughly washed off in my kitchen.

      • Well, just imagine that the dandelions have been organically grown and cultivated. That might help the taste. I also suggest a balsamic vinegar since it has a stronger flavor than the typical red wine table vinegar.
