There is a van here in Chicago that grows grass from the roof top.  When it drives around, the grass waves in the wind.

THat's the coolest thing ever! Why have I never seen this van?

So where are you? my little needle.
The stack's been burned away.

hooray! i love lawns in weird spots. that was what my crew took to burning man the couple of times we made the journey (it's a loooong drive from here).

i think it would be fabulous to have a mini-lawn instead of an area rug in the living room, or to line all your window sills with lawn. you really do have to put some effort into it to keep it looking nice though.

Grass Monteros! Grass couches! Grass vans! Grass Area rugs!  Ahhh! I Love it!
I'm so glad to see all these cool ideas for grass!

Spitbubble:  I used a mixture of seeds....but I do know that one of the bags was kentucky blue grass (we had small bits in the shed here and there)

Has anyone ever planted wheat grass?  Ive seen trays of it at juice bars and have wondered if I could do that too!  I dont think that they use dirt though...I think it might be a hydroponic??
(anyone ever try wheat grass juice....wow is that stuff intense!)         ~M

wheat grass is super easy to sprout, but since it really is wheat, you have to replace it fairly often to keep it nice and green and short. you can sprout it on dirt or on damp soil-less mix or whatever. you can do the same with oats or rye or any grain. you can even grow rice in a bucket! (i went through a phase where i was obsessed with growing staple crops.)

aww now i want grass in my downtown apartment love the windowsill idea :)maybe it will scare away the yucky downtown dirt that likes the windowsill Tongue can't be wheat grass though. every time i think of it, it remind me of the sex and the city episode..hmmm..hehe Tongue might have to bug my dad for some of the plain lawn stuff out of their garage

Rescue Toaster- The van is usually around Addison and Broadway.  In Boystown/Wriggleyville.  I have always thought it was so refreshing to look at while waiting for the bus.  Unfortunately I have never seen the owner.  I would give that person a big pat on the back for beautifing  the neighborhood...or at leat the bus stop.
