Thank you for your response Benna. Yes, my poor Dandelion flowers don’t look that great after their wash, you’re right. But the amount of critters left floating in the dirty water don’t make me feel comfortable adding the blooms just like that to the rest of my food. I may try brushing them with a make up brush and see if the little critters come out. I’ll follow your advise for the plants picked that aren’t that close to the ground. Thank you very much for your guidance.
