We tried to be strong. We tried to fight it. We thought we could mow the lawn and that would be enough.

But the creeping tendrils across the driveway and the high grass border along the fence...

I tried to use lawn sheers. I really did. But they left my finger badly bruised after just trimming one side of the driveway.

So, we broke down and did it: we purchased a trimmer/edger.

No more laughing at the neighbors as they make perfect corners in their lawns.

Ronak and the edger

We've joined the masses. We've become suburbanites.

We can only take pride in our edger/trimmer being electric and therefore better for the environment.

And we don't have an underground sprinkler system or a Hummer or maid service... yet.

In 2007, we moved to Austin, and this blog chronicled our adaptation to Texas life: festivals, wildflowers, and bats - oh my! Then we had a baby, and that changed everything, so now, we blog about where to buy organic food, what parks are fun for babies, which exterminator is taking care of our scorpion problem. (You know, the usual parental concerns.)
