Yes, you can Smoke a Dandelion

...just a funky picture from this past Spring...

I'm no druggie, but I'll do almost anything for a laugh, including smoking a big fat dandelion. Each April, when dandelions pop, it's a literal gold rush for lawn care operators like me. Each season, I give out a prize for the biggest, fatest dandelion found. This particular specimen was only about 5 inches long, but mega fat, especially its stem.

Dandelions are a perennial weed, meaning a single plant returns year after year. On top of that, they drop thousands of new seeds every season as well. If left unchecked, dandelions will take over a property quickly. Are you ready for next Spring? Only 5 months left

The dandelion pictured is estimated to be 3 years old.
