This is a repost from a gardening channel by Stefan Sobkowiak (https://invidio.us/channel/UCufnDvlHF9NHzEL4c3ECZUA). Dandy-leos are amazing plants! They heal your soil and your guts, grow easily, and are an extremely easy way to begin re-learning our long lost horticultural skills (foraging already naturally growing food).

DANDELIONS - do you HATE / LOVE them? Or you just don’t care.
If you hate it you may have spent a lot of time and money trying to eliminate it. Here’s my understanding of what this plant is doing and how you can save a lot of time dealing with this plant.

When I was a kid, I was told to close my eyes, make a wish then blow the seeds off the dandelion. If I managed to blow them all away, the wish would come true. If some remained stuck, well...give it a week or two and a hundred more opportunities to wish would appear!

I just wanted to do a quick video on making a cup of dandelion "coffee". It's not actually coffee, as the drink has nothing to do with coffee beans. But it is very coffee-like and can be used as a substitute. Plus, it's free and has no caffeine. This is just one method of making a small amount. There are other ways to do it. For instance, if you want to do a whole bunch, it might be wise to use a food processor to grind up the roots and to roast them in the oven. These same methods can be used to make chicory "coffee" too! (using the roots of the blue flowered plants, or chicory, one often sees along highways).
I have a boring blog site too if you are totally bored and want to read stuff: www.archaicarcher.com
