I like saving the leaves of the dandelions I dig up in the spring. They are better before they bloom, mind you. I tried boiling them up on their own and I can't say I much enjoyed them. The flavour is very strong. Keep in mind I have always loved spinach, even as a child, so you get an idea of how strong they are. However, smuggled into a salad of mixed greens, they do not overwhelm, and I've served them to my unsuspecting family more than once and didn't get any complaints. They are supposed to be highly nutritious, so I say go for it. Hmm, think I'll go weed the lawn...

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
