Gardening

We may live in an agricultural state, but I am certainly NOT a farmer. Considering my lawn is currently the only ‘crop’ that I attempt to grow doesn’t say too much. Farming a yard is pointless when you think about it. All the chemical controls, pruning of weeds, irrigation and cutting yield nothing more than a nice green carpet for all your efforts. If your neighbors don’t do their part to control the weeds, your work is pretty much all in vain. It’s the one crop that bears no fruit but gets ‘harvested’ several times a month. If you don’t mulch, you take the spoils and bag them to the curb. Why do we toil so hard for such a ‘crop’? Well, aside from preventing erosion, I’d say vanity. How insane is that?
