Most people spend considerable money and time getting rid of these little yellow flowers in their yard, but I welcome them and harvest them for tea and food, (some make wine out of them also).  You see, they're one of the best medicines you can take. The entire pant is edible and much better for you then almost anything you can buy in a store.  I began taking Dandelion root pills and my Doctor said, "Why pay for it, they're free in your yard for tea, or eat it like Spinach, cooked or raw in salad.  She said the stuff is good for,

Providing antioxidants Reducing cholesterol Regulating blood sugar Reducing inflammation Lowering blood pressure Aiding weight loss Reducing cancer risk Boosting the immune system Aiding digestion

She did warn to thoroughly wash it before eating it.  And that little sprig of wild Garlic beside the first Dandelion...that's getting harvested too.
