Now, dandelion… Yum! We like dandelion and it grows very easily, all the year round. Well, nearly all the year, Mummy finds a leaf or two from time to time in the winter but not very much, it’s true. Most of the year we can eat dandelion whenever we want.
Dandelion grows in the grass so if we fancy it instead of grass when we are outside we can eat it of our own accord. We can’t get to eat most of the vegetables we like as they are the other side of our run or in Mummy’s special earthy places. Fred said they were called beds but they are nothing like grassy hutches or snuggle-sacks. Fred was an expert on things growing in the garden. I missed the picture of him with the chard because I decided to talk cucumber, but he’ll be showing off the fennel in a few days’ time. He was very clever like that. I miss him nearly as much as I miss Hugo. I lived with both of them, you know. I never lived with George, just next door, and I miss him too, just not quite as much.
Dandelion has lovely yellow flowers which are on the end of a long stalk. It is really fun to pick up one end of the stalk and chew it till you get to the lovely sweet flower. Mummy has a video of George doing that. She’s got a picture of me too, which I think I’ll put here. There you are!
The leaves are very nice too. Very leafy and flavoursome. We like to get them picked fresh from the garden. If I eat a lot of them I find I have to go to the toilet more though. Am I allowed to say that on here? I’m sorry if I’m not supposed to say that.
There are different types of dandelion in the garden. Some have big leaves, some have small ones with even more indentations along the side. They are all just as nice. The flowers look the same as each other. They look the same as cat’s ear and colts foot as well. They begin with C though and today’s letter is D.
I think that’s all I know about dandelions.
Don’t forget that you can get the first ebook about us for a small amount of money if you click the panel at the side. I’m in it! I’m a hero of course!
See you tomorrow.
