Easy pickin' when they're bloomin'

Spent the afternoon digging up dandelions. They're easy to spot when they're blooming, and it's wet enough that those tap roots come up pretty easily. I filled up half of my 3'x3'x4' compost bin. That's a lot of dandelions. I shouldn't put the flowers in the compost, since my composts never seem to get hot enough to kill the seeds (and even when pulled out of the ground, some of those flowers will still develop into seed heads). But I just couldn't dump all those green leaves into yard debris can (not to mention that the can is all full of branches anyhow).

I'm wrapping up my Pudding Notes for issue #21, and they'll go into the mail tomorrow, along with the exchange books for Lisa.
