So once the snow piled up on the lawn and my preserved vegetables were gone from the freezer, I stopped having a lot to blog about. I have not lost my interest in local food and environmental issues, I just stopped posting. I did decide that it was time to kick off my 2010 year with a post about Lawns. Today, I read this yahoo story about how green lawns may be contributing to global warming. To me, this is not really news and, in fact, more incentive to rip out my whole lawn and plant a bigger organic garden. It did make me wonder: are people unaware that maintaining a green lawn is not environmentally friendly?
Fortunately, I will not need to change my lawn care practices to be more "green," much to the chagrin of my neighbors.
