Grow, Ye Yellow Headed Demons! Grow!!

I am far from "crunchy".  {Pay no attention to the quinoa simmering on my stove.}

However, you cannot deny the slippery slope of my all-natural-ascension, as I am longing for our yard's dandelions to grow. 


Enter, if you will, the glorious book: "Unleashing Your Inner Wild" {totally un-crunchy}, chapter 3, page 203.    

Roasted Dandelion Root "Coffee"


That's right.  Roasted Dandelion Root "Coffee".


Skeptical.  Skeptical.  Intrigued!!

Here's a blog post that explains the process.

The very next day, my gardening mentor, Susan, posted this curious blog link.

And did I mention that just Tuesday, I saw multiple vendors selling dandelion leaves, at the farmer's market?

And so it is, for the first time in my adult life, I am actually looking FORWARD to those beautiful, yellow headed demons... er.... delights taking over our yard!

How about you?  Any experience with eating weeds?  {hippie brownies don't count}
