Awakenings: Hey! What’s wrong with weeds?

on March 28, 2016

To the average person, weeds are a nuisance. See a weed. Pull a weed. Of course, that all depends on the kind of weeds and where they are located. Farmers detest them. Children love them. Didn’t you ever play with a “dande-fluff”? Then, there are those that take over the lawn providing just the right amount of green where nothing else will grow. These you never pull but mow right over instead! And, believe it or not, some are actually edible.

March 28 is…
National Weed Appreciation Day

Weed Appreciation Day? You’ve got to be kidding, right? I try my darnedest to keep those pesky little fellows OUT of my flower garden! Why on earth would I want to celebrate an appreciation for something so annoying?

  1. Yay dandelions! They are so good for you. I also dry the roots and powder them to add to teas or salads or soup.
    I follow a guy from the UK who runs an edible wild clinic. Good stuff to say the least. Thanks for posting!

  2. I’ve got a real fondness for dandelions. Which is just as well because our property is covered with them. And violets. And pink-eyed grass. We specialize is blooming weeds, aka wildflowers.
