    Did you know that dandelions are edible, and are even more nutritious than spinach? Dandelions are high in vitamins A and C, and contain impressive levels of iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and copper. By digging them easily out of the ground by hand and rinsing them off, dandelions make a great addition to any salad. Other ways to organically deal with dandelions is to mow frequently when they are blooming, to prevent the yellow blossoms from maturing into seeds. You can also pour boiling water over the plants to wilt and kill them. In addition, you can rid your lawn of dandelions just by improving your soil quality. Dandelions, like many weeds, often prefer poor, acidic soils. Improving your soil with compost and mulch will greatly reduce the population of dandelions in your yard.
