Do Eat the Dandelions!
Don’t dig your dandelions. Consider leaving any dandelions alone this fall. We have a nice lawn, and only a few dandelions – we’ve been practicing Edible IPM (Integrated Pest Management) for years. We don’t spray or use anything on our lawn, which means we can eat the early spring dandelion leaves. They are delicious in salads, and also in soup. We’ve eaten so many that we hardly have any in the Spring, and I do miss them! Much cheaper and tastier than burying the large leaves in the grocery store.
