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!

Fruit Pies In June

Today is the last day to enter the Strolling of the Heifers fruit pie competition. You can use any old dough recipe, they say, as long as it includes the sponsor’s product, but “the filling and overall pie recipe MUST be original.” Ingredients should be local.

I am a pie nut, and have been making them since I was a kid. I have quite a few pies that would amaze judges, but not in June.

The only fruit pie that might possibly be made fresh from local ingredients in June would be strawberry-rhubarb, if one got lucky and those were available. Apples, peaches, cherries, berries, and so on all come later in the season around here, and would be great for a harvest festival fruit pie competition. Key lime and such aren’t local.
