Growing Grass, Not Food – S2E11
“Life moves pretty fast; if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it!” The opening monologue in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off could not be more correct! Life has been moving pretty fast over the past month, and it is time to pull back the curtain and tell you what has been happening. Regular followers of Small Scale Life on Instagram, Facebook, the Podcast and here at the Blog have probably picked up on a thing or two that something big has been going on in the background. Not to spoil the fun and suspense, I will just say that I have been growing grass by the square foot, and I don’t mean the fun stuff that people grow in California, Colorado and other states. No, I have been growing some nice turf in the yard, and growing grass was the first major step towards accomplishing our overall plan. To learn more and find out why, you’ll just have to listen to the podcast!
