Quick! Pick Dandelions Before Neighbors Mow Them Down! Full of Vitamins & Nutrients to Eat!

Quick! Send your kids over to the neighbors to pick their dandelions before they mow their lawns! Town halls, libraries, police stations, and the State House in Montpelier, Vermont should not mow down dandelions, but instead, put notices up in laundromats where low income people do their laundry because they can't afford their own washer and dryer at home, and tell them to come get the free food growing on public property: DANDELIONS! Always help children to pick dandelions because the best tasting ones have BEES eating them!
