    Default Dandelions

    Hey all!
    My 3 babies have not tried dandelions yet. I was going to buy some online but noticed we had tons in our yard. No pesticides, freshly cut grass. Is this safe for them? And how to clean/prepare them if yes? Thanks in advance!

    They are super cute. I just pull the whole dandelion up, inspect carefully for insects, eggs etc (anything you don't want to bring inside and expose them to). As you noted, the main issue is pesticides, fertilizers ets. Just be aware that these chemicals can be washed down into your yard from a neighbor's yard if the drainage allows. If that is not an issue than there should be no problem taking them from your lawn.

    I didnít even think about the neighbors possibly using pesticides. We live in an HOA so we have tons of neighbors. Iíll just take the safe route and buy the dried ones online. Thank you!
