Eat Your Lawn?!?

As someone who has no lawn on my entire property, I can relate to this story about homeowners who have pulled up the lawn and put the space to more productive use. I wish I had more sunlight on my lot so I could grow more food crops. My wife, of Sicilian heritage, is always begging me to put in tomatoes or an herb garden. I only wish I could, but it would require removing several large, mature tree and they do so much to keep the house cool in the summer. I am sure we save untold dollars on electricity as we don't have to run the air conditioning nearly as much as we might without the trees. Still, I can dream, can't I? (SMILE)
