Nature's Dynamic Accumulators

One day it will surely be a baffling mystery to anyone studying our stage of humanity: Why we went to considerable effort, expense and energy killing "weeds" with beautiful bright yellow flowers that are edible and have tremendous healing properties.

Dandelions are rich in vitamins A,B,C,D, iron, calcium, beta carotene, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. They are said to aid healing in anemia, arthritis, cysts, cancer, liver, pancreas, bladder and kidney problems.

The greens, flowers, roots and even stalks can all be eaten.

In this video, we also learn that they loosen and aerate the soil, making it softer. No need to bring lime to your soil when you have nature's dynamic accumulators bringing calcium right to the surface for nothing!
