dandelions picked for dye

Natural Dye Experiment: Dandelions

Fri, 5.8.2015. The dandelions are in bloom! I'd love to try dandelion greens on my salad or take a shot at making dandelion wine, but I don't trust the safety of suburban lawns and roadsides. So we'll make some dye.

Jim picking dandelions

We went out this afternoon with our nylon produce bags and collected about a half pound of flowers and leaves.

Stay tuned for the results... which are here>>>
