It appears I have growing in my yard one of the largest dandelions I have ever seen. Perhaps it will make some sort of world record, at the rate it is growing. Due to a very dry summer and fall and a very wet winter, we are experiencing a bumper crop of weeds. Dandelions abound in the yard. I must have weeded thousands of volunteer elm seedlings. It reminds me of that old adage: How do you eat an elephant? Answer: One bite at a time. And so it goes with the battle of the weeds.
