"I'm not really a career person.I'm a gardener,basically.".....George Harrison

Let’s start a movement!

Preface:I was gonna post some lame-ass post about growing amaryllis,but a FaceBook friend clued me onto this.

Well,the 60’s hippie chick personality in my brain came back to the forefront.and took over from all the other people living in my head,and said,”You need to say something about this,girl.”

Actually,I think she said,”Bitch,do something about this!”

Yep….

 

….my sixties,hippie,radical,flower child…

 

...a total embarrassment to my Conservative parents,I might add,…

 

...is coming out.

 

Watch this.

I hope this link works,as the TV station doesn’t give you a link to embed their video…

And wonder…

 

Why?

 

…As I do…

 

Cities consider grass more attractive than a garden?

 

…I’m talking about lawn grass,here.Not the other stuff,which is a whole other discussion…

 

Grass has no value.

Isn’t it,technically speaking,a weed?

 

It takes up our water resources.

You can have chickens in your backyard,but veggies in your front yard is a no-no?

In these times,doesn’t it makes sense to grow your own?

 

Those vegan terrorists!

Guess they need to be stopped,at all costs…….

????

I read where this master gardener sent a letter to the mayor... http://www.floridasurvivalgardening.com/2012/11/orlando-gardener-fights-to-keep-his.html

Crazy to think a tidy lawn is more important than growing food. Apparently neat is more valuable than productive. Seems rather crazy, doesn't it? You would think a compromise could be met. I'm sure they can draft regulations for how to garden that would please both the gardener and the home owner who wants tidy. The irony of it all is that he can have nasty pooping chickens on the other side of the house? WTH???
