Guess What I have been making ?

It all started bright and early Friday Morning. Mishka (My little goat girl) and I went out after the dew had burned off and started picking DANDELIONS - Yes, those wonderful gifts that we are taught to kill with every horrible chemical we can find. Here at the Funny Farm it is a favorite of both two and four leggeds.. Since there is not a chemical every, every used here you can eat them without any worry. Mishka and I took a nice basket with cotton towel in the bottom and went to picking. Mishka I think thought that every flower was her's - she tried to take them out of the basket thinking I was just collecting for her. Then the hens came a running thinking "Oh Boy, Mom is picking us some goodies". I finally had my 500 heads of perfect gold and off to the kitchen I went. Mishka and the hens continued plucking and eating - you can never run out of Danelions on this farm - I know it drives my neighbor NUTS because he spends his every waking moment trying to kill things that could feed him, his family and farm animals but he is a slave to Monseto..

I have to say that I really miss dandelions! I always thought they were so bright and cheery looking and so fun to run through when they were seed puffs! The greens are also really good for you so why is it that people do try so hard to kill them? I don't get it!

I just hate that commerical where they are the "Bad Neighbor" if they have dandelions... Folks change their lightbulbs but still spray the heck out of everything and wondering why we are getting sicker and sicker.. As you can see I can really start on a rant about this... Sorry.

I too love to play in the puffs, then my eye swell closed.

I love the greens too - see we are two pea in a pod. Love pea pods too.

We really are two peas in a pod aren't we! It just doesn't make sense when you think about it that the weed killer companies that specifically target dandelions and yet there are so many wonderful and healthy things about them! I wouldn't be surprised if there is a cancer cure in them!It would serve us right that we have been given this great plant and we are out there destroying it! I better stop my rant too! hugs!!
