Grow food, not lawns

Re "Overwatering is a crime, but not for all Californians" (Editorials, July 17): With regards to allocating California's limited water resources to the most beneficial uses, this editorial piece promotes ornamental turf lawn irrigation over agricultural needs. Until the USDA includes lawn clippings in their dietary guidelines, this board's opinion is highly flawed.

And God forbid anyone actually plants a vegetable garden in their suburban yard. That would be way too beneficial.
