Lawn Sanity!

I detest grass. I’m so allergic that I consider the stuff a personal attack. Beyond that, I’ve always considered all the money and energy that is put into inedible crops that aren’t even pretty to be a disgusting form of conspicuous consumption.

I cheered out loud when I read this article: The Incredible, Edible Front Lawn

It makes so much more sense—and it’s prettier, too! People actually eat what they grow, instead of growing it to cut it. Wow.

  1. You think it’s bad were you live, try Phoenix. In the middle of a desert, nothing but green lawns as far as the eye can see. And no enforcement of watering laws even more lax than those here in Texas where we have tons more water than they do. I was hardly surprised to read that they’re forecasting running out of water in the next few decades.

  2. We’ve heard drought, drought, drought here–but there was only a month, maybe less, when our county wasn’t allowing any watering of lawns. Even then, there were exceptions for landscapers! I don’t think watering should be allowed for anything BUT food crops during a drought. I love flowers, but I also understand priorities.

  3. And there are some lovely, drought-tolerant flowers out there, not to mention the lovely flowers on some food plants.

    Okay, bunches of mentions of home gardening hitting me at once – I think the universe is trying to tell me to get off my backside and start a container garden 🙂

    Thanks for the link, darlin’!
