That whole thing makes me furious. As a society we really need to rethink our values. Is it better to put grass in your front lawn and waste water on something that looks pretty (in the eyes of some) or to use that same water on something that many still find pretty, that can actually sustain life.

Fresh fruits and veggies - especially locally grown and organic - aren't affordable to many. Why would we not let people grow their own? And does it really matter if it's grown in the front yard or back?
