Just got back from walking the dog. On the way we passed the owner of the local lawn care company applying weed-n-feed to a lawn. AS required for safety, he was wearing full coveralls and a resirator that pretty much covered his whole face. As I watched him spraying I couldn't help but think.

If the product is unsafe enough for humans that you need to wear that level of protection and put a warning sign on the lawn when finished -- what makes us think it is safe to put into the environment at all (much less intentionally)?


  1. And they spray this stuff on hospital grounds. Even more bizarre...

  2. That's why I've quit using products like that on my lawn . . . my kids play on that grass and the baby puts it in her mouth, you know?
