I let this grow in my SFG bed to try juicing it, but now I’m having second thoughts. It was a volunteer. Does anyone have experience with juicing this plant. it would be organic.

I think you're supposed to harvest them when they're younger, before they get bitter. The milky sap is actually a form of latex. I have a book on wild foods where the author casually mentions that eating too much dandelion gives him headaches. That makes me wonder what the point of eating it is?
