Most people look at their yards, see dandelions and head over to the big box store for some weed killer. But, are weeds really a bad thing?
Most of our disdain with weeds comes from the fact that we have lawns instead of gardens. Weeds interrupt our view of an endless sea of green grass.
But, that weed is telling you something. Weeds have a purpose and when you see them you should begin to question WHY it's there. What is it telling you about your soil?
Here's a little video with several individuals discussing dandelions at Paul Wheaton's site in Montanna.
Ray is part of the Ray and Randi duo, who actually don't live on the farm. They have a micro-homestead in Gilmanton, but are VERY active over at IFP and are guest bloggers for them.
