DeBlog: Why Are There So Many Dandelions?

By Jason DeRusha, WCCO-TV

I promise we're not stuck in the middle of a series of Good Question rants. Last night we talked about Canada Geese. Tonight we're talking about dandelions. But haven't you noticed just an explosion of them this year?

Andy in St. Joseph emailed asking about all those dandelions. Why are there so many this year? And why are they so tough to get rid of?

I'd love you to email me pictures of dandelions. And not just the ugly pictures -- I want the pictures of your kids making cute dandelion art projects. I want it all! And I'll use it at ten.

We also make talk with a local chef who uses dandelions in his food. Share in the comments: is there anything good about dandelions? What's your secret to get rid of them?

I admit I feel a little like Andy Rooney: "And what's the deal with all these dandelions?" But I usually end up with great information in these kinds of stories, so wish me luck! See you tonight on TV at 10.
