First off above is an image for the two fronts we will be tracking over today and Friday. You can see we will see the first front push through our area today bringing along some rain / Scattered thunderstorms with it. Now today I don't see much severe weather but more of (scattered thunderstorms possible) and WINDY at times. Right now it is looking like our main threats will be Heavy rain off and on, And Wind. Right now I think we see rainfall between a half inch and three quarters of an inch possible. and winds are looking between 20 and 25 mph with gusts possible to 30 maybe 35 mph at times. I think we will hold off the better chance for severe weather until (Late tonight into Friday).. So for now it is looking like Scattered thunderstorms with isolated severe of Friday. And I will keep you posted.....
Now I was out today doing some yard work for neighbors and I seen a LOT of the one plant most of us don't like very well.....Do you know what one I'M talking about?? You guessed it! The Dandelion's LOL :) Now just looking at them in this picture they look kinda nice! Don't you think? But when in our nice green yard they look (Yuck!) But really there not all bad! First off here are a few tips I found out about Dandelion's and this is a good question. Weed Plant Or Friend??? :\ Hmmmmmmm.....
Weed Plant Or Friend?Dandelion is a good example of a Weed Plant that you can go after in the fall. It is much easier to attack the deep-rooted weed in a lawn made wet by the rain and overnight dew. If you wait until spring, it becomes much trickier to get to the weed without hurting your lawn, too.
Now after looking at that above I came across this recipe for Dandelion Salad. Now I have NEVER tried this and I'M not sure I would?!?! I'M not saying it is bad because I'M sure its not but I would feel a little odd eating a plant that has always been a weed plant to me all my life! Here is the recipe I have posted below if any of you would like to try it?!?! And if any of you already have please feel free to post all about it in the comments at the bottom of this post! I would love to know what you Bloggers think!!!!! ;)Dandelion Salad
