Dandelion compost tea

Post  walshevak on Wed Feb 08, 2012 6:40 pm

Got a yard full of dandelions?

Recipe from the latest copy of FINE GARDENING

Fill a bucket 3/4 full of dandelions and fill bucket with water. Keep in the sun for 10 day, stirring the contents daily. When the foam at the top dissipates, strain the mixture. Because of its strength, however, keep it away from stems and leaves.

Humm, I've been promising the 1st graders a jar of dandelion jelly. Have you got dandelions already? Pity that such an amazing herb is so despised. At low moments in my life I have been cheered by a bouquet of yellow love from a grubby little boy hand and shocked into joy when I realized that the flowers were not jumping in the unmowed lawn, it was a whole flock of goldfinch eating the fluff (or the seed connected to the fluff)

Debs….thanks for sharing
