Most of you have probably not eaten dandelion greens before, but have probably heard it being talked about when on a walk in the fields. The beautiful hallow of seeds which we have all blown and watched disperse in the air is actually the means dandelions propulse themselves. Where the seed lands, a dandelion green shall grow; inconspicuous, close to the earth and in patches. Considered a weed to the gardeners and a delicacy to the Mediterranean cooks!
