Apparently, I'm not the only one who says we have to give up on fighting weeds with pesticides. In fact, we might learn to like some weeds! Sabrina Saccoccio wrote a great article on dandelions, the hard-to-kill flowers that brighten up yards all over North America...whether we want them to or not! The article gives lots of interesting info on the history of this plant, ideas for using the dandelion as foodstuff (tea, salads, even as a pickle!), and links to environmentally safe ways to get rid of weeds. An engaging read!

While I do let the dandelions run free in our yard, I'm still working diligently to rip them and other weeds out of my vegetable garden - and getting bitten to death by the bugs while I'm at it! :)
