Dandelion Patch

Hi Jammers! Jammie263 here!

The Dandelion Patch is now in stores at Jam Mart Furniture!

I don't get why anyone would buy it though...

I mean, they are weeds, and you can find them everywhere in Jamaa! 

I would rather go hunting for them then spend 350 gems. .____.

Well, they are members only, but guess what, non members out there!?

Go dandelion hunting with me and you won't have to pay a thing! (members are welcome too!)

Well, here are some facts about dandelions:

Here are some interesting facts about the dandelion flower:
  • The dandelion is the only flower that represents the 3 celestial bodies of the sun, moon and stars. The yellow flower resembles the sun, the puff ball resembles the moon and the dispersing seeds resemble the stars.
  • The dandelion flower opens to greet the morning and closes in the evening to go to sleep.
  • Every part of the dandelion is useful: root, leaves, flower. It can be used for food, medicine and dye for coloring.
  • Up until the 1800s people would pull grass out of their lawns to make room for dandelions and other useful “weeds” like chickweedmalva, and chamomile.
  • The average American recognizes thousands of logos for commercial products, yet recognizes fewer than five plants that grow in his/her area. Dandelions are most likely one of those familiar plants.
  • The name dandelion is taken from the French word “dent de lion” meaning lion’s tooth, referring to the coarsely-toothed leaves.
  • Dandelions have one of the longest flowering seasons of any plant.
  • Seeds are often carried as many as 5 miles from their origin!
  • A not so fun fact: Every year Americans spend millions on lawn pesticides to have uniform lawns of non-native grasses, and we use 30% of the country’s water supply to keep them green.
