Reminds me of the first time I rode the bus through Plymouth, MN. Miles and miles of streets without sidewalks and acres and acres of *the* most boring yards - endless grass with here and there a tree in a fence. I kept expecting to come around a corner and see a gigantic shrine to John Deere lawn tractors. . .

Sharon had a great idea about keeping the kids close to home instead of the
soccer thing but we need to realize that tuition can often be paid for if
you are a top athlete. The ladies at the Master Gardener class read a great
script about the Creator talking to St Francis about the tribe of
suburbanites that live in Penna. and have large areas of flat green grass
rather than the diversity which was there originally. If someone has a copy
could you please guide me to a website to copy the script.

and they water the grass to have it grow so that they can cut it short and
bag it to have it hauled away... Urban lawns need to be turned into gardens
for wild native plants to draw the beneficial bugs and fungi into the veggie
gardens. Most of the foreign plants are not nutritious for our beneficials!
