    Apparently, they fly them across the ocean in drones and dump them in my back yard.

    Dandelions are a medicinal plant and food crop. Seed is grown & harvested to propagate the plants for those purposes.

    I had heard that Dandelions were originally brought to the US by the Europeans as a food crop. You can often see it in salad mix bags. There is also dandelion wine!

    The leaves are delicious in a salad. I’m told the root is edible too.

    The leaves are good so long as you get to them before you let the dog out in the morning.
