Foodie Friday - Eat Your Lawn
I don't understand the obsession with mown grass, with the "perfect lawn." People spend so much time and effort growing plants, that serve no real purpose. I ran across this recently, the side lawn of a huge house on the bluff overlooking the Potomac River in Alexandria, filled with edible plants. Tomatoes, squash, peppers, chard. There are some decoratives, flowers and such, but most of this is edibles. Gardening is a lot of work, but so is growing and mowing grass. Let's connect with where food comes from, let's grown things we can eat and enjoy.
