  • Betcha my root's bigger than yours.

    Not something that I would usually brag about but, check out the size of this Dandelion root. I just pulled out of the yard. It's over 2' long! I challange anyone to beat this.

      ha ha ha...And here I was thinking...:shot:

      Chop that root up, dry it, add some raspberry leaves and make tea. Good for digestion!

          The roots can also be used as a coffee substitute.
          It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

            Generally I do dry the raspberry leaves as well. But they are good just crumbled up with a couple of berries, or rose, clover or fireweed flowers (or the dandilion flower) for a quick brew in the summertime.

              Didn't put a tape on it, but I'm guessing it's a contender!! He came running up to me and said "Dad, check this out!!" I was instantly reminded of this and said, "Hey, you might beat that guy online!". HAHA!!!
