National Dandelion Day

Date When Celebrated : Always April 5

Any plant as versatile and durable as the dandelion, certainly deserves a special day set aside to honor it. We all know of dandelions as weeds in our lawns. To kids, the dandelion is a flower to gather and bring home to mom. But, dandelions are oh so much more than just a weed. Even many gardeners think of it as a weed. But, more knowledgeable gardeners know better. Dandelion leaves are edible, and are savored in soups and salads. It is rich in vitamins A, B, C, and D. Dandelions are used in making wine and for tea, too. Native Americans used it for medicinal purposes.    

You can celebrate National Dandelion Day in many ways. Eat your lawn.....use this special day to introduce yourself to the joys of eating dandelions. However, it is taboo to pull dandelions or treat them like a weed today.
