Somewhere in Tustin
While I was out treasure hunting on the weekend, I came across an outstanding example of what is in my opinion the best, possibly the only good, use of fake grass.
These Tustinites had captured the natural heat generating property of fake grass to promote healthy vigorous growth of their watermelon crop. Not only do the melon plants dig the heat, but the artificial surface will no doubt help protect the fruits from rot and insect damage.
I like the way the vines are beginning to spread over the public sidewalk here. Hope these residents don't get an encroachment ticket from some over-zealous code enforcer.
