Does anyone else seem to have an abundance of Dandelions this year?

Our yard and garden are like something out of Dandelionaphobia......... Also is there anything you have used that has worked to kill these, yet safe for flowers ?

  • Ugh, yes, our yard is FILLED with the damn things. My husband is PISSED.

    Are they really edible? I've never heard of that! Y'all are more than welcome to come dig up as many as you'd like out of our yard!

  • We have tons. But if u pick them young they are not bitter and make an excellent salad.

  • It's easy to kill dandelions ... just eat them. I prefer them with hot bacon dressing. In fact, I actually order seeds and plant the stuff so I have enough each spring.

  • Nope, we had some weedkiller put down at the end of last summer or fall.

  • I was going to suggest salad like the first poster did. We don't have any here.

  • Weed-out I got it at the hardware store, not sure if Loes or Home Depot carry it or not. Try a Mom and Pop hardware store.
