Spring Part III

Not long after the daffodils bloom, the front yard begins to green up. It’s not that the grass is growing, oh no. It’s nothing as good as that. It will be at least eight weeks before the patron saint of warm weather grasses begins to bless our yard. Long before the grass begins to awake, my front yard turns green with a cash crop of wild green onions. My clever plan this year is to put a sign announcing their presence as a deliberate act in my front yard. “Free! Wild Onions! Pick and Eat!” This probably won’t rid me of any onions as the neighbors seem to have plenty of their own, but it should qualify my front yard as “agricultural use” and thus a lower property tax rate.
