That was the day all this insanity got started. The day I decided to fire the lawncare company, put aside my fear of yard work, abandon my future and take control of my grass farm.
It's all Paul Tukey's fault.
Paul Tukey was a guest on National Public Radio's Science Friday that day. Host Ira Flatow led a discussion with Tukey and University of California turf specialist James Baird. The topic: better living, without chemistry – growing a healthy, green lawn the organic way.
I didn't believe it. I guess I still don't. But it's early yet.
So I dashed to my public library to grab Tukey's book. They had it, to my surprise. Book in hand, the journey began. No looking back now.
