"Thus says the LORD of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another, do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, or the poor, and let none of you devise evil against another in your heart." (Zechariah 7:9-10, ESV)

Early Crop

No Gravatar

I have already been able to start harvesting an early crop of. . . dandelions. I’ve not yet harvested much of the crop, as I wanted to let ’em go to seed and spread the wealth a bit first. (Second crop should yield some nice, tasty flowers.) So far, I only have a goodly mess of greens and enough dandelion root to make a couple of pots of dandelion infusion, after a roast and grind. The greens are washed, ready to pat dry and freeze in a vacuum pack. The roots are cleaned and ready to roast this evening.

Looking forward to some good eats. A few plants harvested daily should keep me in dandelion “tea” and greens for a while, and as those I expect to sprout from seed come on, I ought to be able to make it through the rest of Spring and at least some of Summer with a bounteous dandelion feast. . . if my Good Neighbor doesn’t take it into his head to mow my lawn as he’s out playing with his riding mower (he’s done that once this Spring–oh well *heh*)

Backstory on “Good Neighbor” mowing my lawn: a few weeks ago, I was clearing things out from under my upper deck and a neighbor’s kids were heading back in from a lil varmint hunting expedition across the creek (just out of city limits on their grandpa’s property). I asked ’em if they wanted a nice fiberglass basketball backboard and hoop I had taken down some years ago after a drunk had driven off the road, down the hill and clipped the metal pole it was mounted on.

They already had a backboard of their own, but the oldest–about 9–came back later and asked for it for one of the other neighborhood kids, a 10-year-old girl he likes to hang out with. Happy to get rid of it. He and his younger brother toted it off with a very impressed 10-year-old blondie tagging along.

Guess whose dad lets him mow with the Deere? 😉
