    Here and there I have had people who knew I mowed lawns ask for grass clippings from lawns where they used no chemicals on the lawns.

    I guess they do, and hey the farmers would have a bi product as well from feeding them our grass clippings. What with all the fert, pest, weed chemicals they could shop them out to the freaks of nature show...cows with two heads would be quite the site. :laugh:

    Allegedly grass makes better ethanol than corn...

    Switchgrass, sugar cane, ... many other crops are better at making ethanol than corn. But, the political wheels are turning fast.

    Keep working on the grass recycling ideas.
