I want a meadow, but all I can manage are dandelions
I have a pot of pink dandelions that I grew from seed. That's right -- I spent two years coaxing these weeds from seed to flower, but now that they are mature, I have a handy source for young greens to add to my salads.
Oh my gosh, Jon, hilarious and touching. <3
The best dandelion recipe I've made was dandelion blossoms battered (I went tempura-like) and fried. It was much easier to gather enough blossoms from my parents' large, midwestern backyard than mine in California. Though there are still enough dandelions popping up on the mulch between my drought-tolerant plants to be a nuisance!
