Desert life

This sustainability thing is pretty cool. I’m doing laundry today and suddenly the ground by the fence started gurgling. I wasn’t really surprised to realize that the run off from the laundry is piped along the yard and released strategically to water the garden. This recycling of grey water is routinely used in the Turks and Caicos and Australia, but I suddenly wondered how many people in, say, New York were aware of this type of life style.
