Lawns...lots and lots of lawns...

March 29, 2007

So I get an email this morning from a colleague with a quote from an article in it.

Using satellite and aerial imagery, research scientists from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration have calculated that approximately 162,000 square kilometers of the United States is covered in turf — an area roughly three times larger than any irrigated crop currently under cultivation. And lawns are thirsty, consuming approximately 270 billion gallons of water a week in the U.S. — enough to irrigate 327,000 square kilometers of organic vegetables.

I immediately wrote back the following, only reading the above paragraph:

After lawns are replaced with veggie gardens. **Tiger Woods' Caddy:** Ok Tiger...now you want to hit this one over the arugula, and past the broccoli....coming to a rest just to the left of the pumpkin patch, but stay back, you DON'T want to be swatting that ball through the pumpkin patch. After that it should be a clear shot to the mirco-greens. **Tiger:** I'm kinda hungry....
