Sod-powered car

I recently was in Wisconsin when I saw something that definitely caught my eye... and made me glad that I walk around with my throw away "blog" camera.

This car has sod on the roof! I have seen this in Chicago where they are encouraging plantings on the roof in order to minimize the heat gain on roofs in the summer. Here is a link to a National Geographic article on "green roofs" here in Chicago.

Really, while this may be a bit practical, it also strikes me as a bit nuts. How do you mow the grass up there? The questions are endless... Posted by Picasa
