HUDSON -- I enjoyed the May 31 article which suggested people turn their lawns into the "home grown national park." For Iowa, I suggest growing the front yard prairie.
Plant that annoying piece of grass in the front of your house to the roadway with Iowa prairie grass (talk to the UNI grass center). We won't have to mow and when the next pandemic rages through Iowa, we can let the buffalo roam.
Bison burgers are mighty yummy.
