Edible Estates: Attack on the Front Lawn
I hate my lawn. I hate mowing it and watching all the moths and crickets try to flee. It's turned my into a despiser of dandelions and purchaser of pesticides. It is the scourge of my summer. I cringe to think of the poisons and energy that go into maintaining little suburban lots. I would much rather love it- revel in it's smells and taste it's bounty.
