No, it is like a squash but when it's dried, it make a good sponge to wash with. I had a neighbor that grew them too. He had more than he knew what to do with.

Yea, my husband told me what they were when I asked him if he ever heard of it. He said you have a big basket of them in the bathroom, mine all came from target, I never grew them.

Good Morning All

Now who here had the nerve to mention green tomatoes? You know darn well what a controversial subject that turns into being.

Ruby have you heard from Mousie or seen her posting?

LOL my kids would pick me dandelions too.

When you eat the dandelions you don't eat the flower part, or at least I never heard of eating the flower.

Well a farm would more likely have pee on the dandelions then a yard.. I don't think they are anything I would try.. When we were in Michigan on the farm my Grandaughter picked me a big bouquet of them..I put them in a vase of water because she was so proud about picking me those flowers.

We grew up eating all kinds of weird greens, including oxtails.
Did your Grandma have another name for the dandelions? I can't spell it properly( my family could have just made up the word) but we always called them Cha-gaud-ia.

My grandma used to pick them and cook them like greens. We had a huge garden. Used to have to put up about 60 quarts of tomatoes every year. I didn't care for other canned veggies. I like them fresh. Still put in a garden every year.

She just called them "greens". She had eight kids during the Depression. I think people learn to eat things that they never thought they would before. Fortunately, we had a lot of relatives that were farmers, so the kids got shipped off to live on farms. Of course, they had to help work the farm.

Good morning everyone~~
I've heard luffa can be eaten, since they're in the
squash catagory.
Must be very young when using them in cooking.

When left to dry for bathing sponges~~
They develop a sound like a rain stick when
you shake them.

Good morning, that would be something fun to try and grow. Maybe I will try planting some when we move to the country in Michigan. What did you do with the ones you grew? Did you make bath sponges out of them?

Missy~~
There's no harm in trying.
Back when I wasn't having a problem with my back, etc.
I used to try something different every season.
One year I grew some amazing, Moon Flowers.
We have a Farmers Bulletin here in Georgia and that's
where I find some interesting seeds.

I still have a few that are dried and intact.
Kids think they're neat, especially with the seeds making
"music" when they shake them.

That link wouldn't work for me. Did it mention that the dandelions were a good source of iron?

If your husband likes salads I bet he'd like the dandelions.

Oh shiit..........Noah;s been after me all day to sign him up for a road test. My only saving grace is that I'm sure he'd fail unless the person giving the test is blind AND a dingwing.

Back then I'm sure many family's ate whatever was cheap or readily available to them. Back during the days of slavery many of the slaves ate greens and just whatever their owners thought of as useless scraps of meat like ribs and wings. Look how popular all that food is now.

I don't think Mousie has posted for the past few days.
I think everyone in her neck of the woods are very nervous
about those killer storms that don't seem to be letting up.

I'm sure she's safe and will check in as soon as she can.
Mousie knows we worry about her and Shuaw, too.

It's finally raining here. Of course, it started right after I had spent an hour watering the container gardens. Just like an Indian raindance. The poor dogs are going stir crazy.
How's everybody doing this fine weekend?
