I was going to do a post about compost today, but I was off work, and feeling lazy, and couldn't be arsed to find my phone to take the photos for it.
Which is really too bad, because our compost this year is really amazing stuff and I can't wait to see the veggies it'll grow!
Instead, I'll simply say that I love, love, LOVE the humble dandelion. We have them all over our yard, and a couple of pots planted for human consumption as well, and every single creature here (excepting the betta fish, who are strict pelletarians) eats the SHIT out of them. I pick the greens for the rabbits and chickens at Squatter Workshop, I chop them into Isis's BARF diet dinners and put them in the cockatiel's clothespin-feeder, I eat them in salads and soups, along with their flowers...they're tasty (if you pick them before they flower--DON'T PICK THE LEAVES OF DANDELIONS THAT HAVE ALREADY FLOWERED, THEY'RE BITTER AND GROSS), super-nutritious, plentiful, and FREE! I have even, thank you Belinda, started putting dandelions in my smoothies. And last Summer's home-canned dandelion syrup is still delicious on (GF for me) pancakes.
And how are all of YOU?
