Dandelion greens are one of the best and most popular herbs for growing indoors.
Here are a few tips on selecting, preparing and harvesting your plants.1.
Pick the right plants2.
Place your plants in a large pot3.
Cut off the tops of the stems4.
Fill your pot with water5.
Remove the leaves from the stems6.
Place the leaves into the water and wait until it is full of water.
The water should be enough to cover the leaves, but not so much that they fall off.
If it is too cold to allow the leaves to dry out completely, remove them from the water with a cloth and place them in the fridge.7.
When the leaves are dry, cut off any leaves that fall off or are too heavy to put into the pot.8.
Put the leaves in the pot and let them grow for about one week.
The leaves will become much lighter.
If they are still too heavy, remove the leaves and place in a different pot.9.
The first week is when the leaves should be ready to harvest.
The stems will look darker than normal, but they should be easy to remove with a fork.
When you pick the plants, they will have no roots, and the roots will be just a small cluster of white dots.10.
If you are planting indoors, place the plants in the ground and let the soil grow for three weeks.
This will help the soil to be more compact and prevent weeds from growing in the soil.11.
When they are done growing, they should still look good.
If not, the leaves may have died.12.
When it is time to harvest, the leafy greens should be about an inch wide and a quarter inch tall.
Make sure they are not too thin, as the leaves can easily become so thin that they are just barely visible.13.
If the leaves fall off, cut them off and discard them.
They should be fine to eat.14.
Once the plants are ready to be harvested, you can take them to the compost bin to compost them.
You can also cut them into pieces and store them in plastic bags.15.
When your leaves are ready for composting, place them inside a bag and store it in the refrigerator for two weeks.
The compost will have a better smell and the leaves will smell fresh and healthy.
If your compost smells bad, the soil will be too dry and your leaves will fall off prematurely.
If this happens, you should take the plants outside to get the soil dry again and take them back to the bag to get it back to its original state.16.
Place them into a plastic bag and seal the bag and the bag with a paper towel to keep them fresh.
Once it is ready, put the leaves back into the compost and put the bags into the fridge for at least two weeks before composting.17.
The plants will look healthy and will not need any more fertilizer.
