The problem is no longer that with every pair of hands that comes into the world there comes a hungry stomach. Rather it is that, attached to those hands are sharp elbows. ~Paul A. Samuelson, Newsweek, 12 June 1967
Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them. ~Bill Vaughn
So the other day I caught Little Goat raiding the Strawberry Patch in the back yard. Not that I mind I've been trying to make the yard as graze friendly as I can, Asparagus , Blueberries ( maybe next year for harvest). Wild onions, Gooseberry , rhubarb ,Sage , Mint all Perennials to come up year after year. And we've had luck with Tomatoes, Cucumbers and Snap Beans.
But When I went out for a cart ride with little Goat I noticed veggies growing in a lot more back and side guards than I normally do. Now Bozeangeles does have a back to the land population . People moved here to get away from those godawful places they left. Of course a lot of other people moved here determined to make it like those places they moved from.
But the point is a lot more people seem to be growing salad in their back yard than I've noticed in the past. Is that Awareness or Economic necessity ?
