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 eat­ing what the grow, instead of grow­ing it to cut it. Wow.

    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.

    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.

  • 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’!
