The Guaranteed Crop!

A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows.  ~Doug Larson

Well, spring seeding is finally on the way.  And whether or not we are planting a garden, a flower bed or on a larger scale ... cereal, pulse, or oilseed crops, we are ALL guaranteed to have a crop of Taraxacum officinale, otherwise known as the dandelion!  This widely unloved, very successful weed is the bright, sunny perennial that smiles across the landscape!  If only we could convince ourselves that dandelion wine was a 'good thing!'
