    We have Crimson Clover lining out driveway. You make tea from it? Guess I'll have to try it.

    The flowers are used for tea..either dry or fresh. It would be best to wait for them to be in fill bloom before harvesting. There's no known medicinal benefits, so I guess taste is what drives folks to it??

    Horses love tender young dandelion leaves. I have no argument with them in my lawn. It is suburbia that has developed the hatred of the dandelion.

    Picked dandelion greens. Cooked them, pretty good. Will still kill them in garden and yard.

    there's a good chance they'll still be around millions of years from now no matter what humans try to do to them. i find that thought somewhat comforting. :)

    Sis has a bumper crop this year!
    How are yours doing this year @baymule, any Iowa dandelions grow for you?
