Weeds for sale! Change the way you think about your yard!

Dandelion greens for sale.

Yesterday I saw dandelion leaves for sale at the local Mrs. Greens. Dandelions have been on my mind lately.  Earlier I wrote, “When weeding becomes foraging, it’s a change in mindset.” Realizing that the dandelions growing in your yard can be added to your sandwich is one thing, but thinking of dandelion leaves as being worth $3.49 a bunch brings it to a whole other level.  Maybe we should encourage the kids in our neighborhoods to ditch the lemonade stands and instead harvest and sell the neighborhood’s dandelions. This is yet one more reason why we should refrain from using pesticides in our yards.


  1. Wow I've never seen them for sale here in Australia! Definitely makes you re-think what 'weeds' are doesn't it? I've heard that they are very good to juice as well.

    1. It was the first time I’ve ever seen dandelions for sale here too. All of a sudden, weeds seem to be the new superfood. I’d imagine they’d be great to juice.
