This is great! I read an article somewhere about a soldier in Iraq? who really missed home, and so his wife sent him soil and seeds and planted a small plot of grass outside his tent and the whole group helps keep it watered, a piece of home in the desert...let me see if I can find it! ... Found it! lhttp://www.martinworks.com/hero/plotofgrass.html
The smell of cut grass.... can't beat it!
