that doesn't really have anything to do with what I'm gonna write about, except that it too is dumb:
lawns. "weeds". why??
mowing a lawn has got to be one of the stupidest things that our culture is obsessed with. weed control equally so.
as i drive around town i see people gruelling away digging dandelions out of their lawns, spraying or dragging pesticide applicators around the lawn, fertilizing. mowing, bagging raking, etc.
the waste of time, water, gas, and airable land confounds me.
i hope we can find some land out of town soon where we can let our grass grow as long as we want and we won't get a fine.

yeah, little kids think dandelions are wonderful, but by the time they are adults, they just think of them as pesky weeds.

and i love what the pesticides on the dandelions do to little kids.
kids are so cute when they have gran mal seizures.

I agree, wild gardens are so much more fun.

there is a great landscape outside the museum in regina of just prairie grasses. never has to be sprayed or weeded because it is NATURAL. meaning it takes care of itself. this is the yard i will ultimately have.
