Our lawn has become a sea of dandelions. Their vibrant yellow flowers dance in unison to the cool spring breeze. We are certainly overdue for cutting the lawn, but until i force myself to do so, we will keep enjoying the nutritious wild foods that have emerged from the ground.

I love making sauerkraut for the family and mixing and matching vegetables, herbs, and spices provides a nice variety to our staple diet.
