via Vegetable Garden Brings Criminal Charges in Oak Park, Michigan – ABC News. What? Ok, do they live where this is not allowed? Actually, they checked first and found no ordinance telling them it was not allowed. The family hired professional to make planter boxes, bought tomato trellises, paving stones and made every effort to make their  project look orderly and pretty as well. So, if they decide what she has planted is “unsuitable” she faces up to 93 days in jail. For a vegetable garden? In her own yard? Wow…and Michelle Obama has a vegetable garden planted on the White House lawn.

  1. That is getting bad when you can’t plant a garden in your own yard! What will happen next?

    Very unfortunate that communities are inflexible about things that make sense; trash and abandoned cars are an eyesore that should be regulated against…not veggies.

    hugs for sharing…very interesting tidbit. 🙂


  3. Oh this just makes my blood boil. I mean COME ON! Let them grow the plants and if she ever decided to get cows and start milking them, then take her to court or something…..but a few “plants”!?! Gimme a break! -lol- I am a gardener and just that thought of not having the freedom to grow your own groceries in your yard (front or back) makes me angry.

    Ps. Hey! How are ya?? 😀
