Gardening as Civil Disobedience

I love how the web works. Here's a sequence of steps I took to find a random (to me, anyway) and interesting article A Homegrown Rebellion.

  1. Was checking out the home page of
  2. Noticed Fun with Google's Calculator and checked out the link
  3. Was browsing the comments and saw a reference to most classic of philosophical questions: Can Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that even he could not eat it?
  4. I was curious if that was a Simpsons reference, so I dropped temperature of a burrito that Jesus could not eat into Google
  5. A few hits down the page I noticed I suppose the name was intriguing enough to me that I clicked on it.
  6. A few articles down I caught an interesting article, which I decided to blog about

Whew, what a trip. Keep in mind this happened over a few days on Sidekick's tiny screen.

Regardless of how you get there, I think you'll find A Homegrown Rebellion an interesting article. It's highlighting a movement that's suggesting folks turn their lawns into gardens.

This so appeals to me because I'm such a pragmatist. At least if I was growing food in my front lawn all my pain and suffering to get something to grow might actually be useful (and tasty).

It's either grow a garden, or lay down cement. Though, there must be some option in between.
