My advice to Julie Bass, move to a community who appreciates good gardeners and loves pets. It is not Oak Park, Michigan.
“Internet Buzz: Concept of Jail Time for Growing a Vegetable Garden “
This is where the video is.
OK the local government reaction is extreme but I saw the photo of this lady’s yard on another article and the vegetable plots do nothing to improve an already dumpy looking house, seriously would you want someone growing a vegetable garden in their front yard on your street? What’s next chickens?
The municipal there may be trying to get her busy and stressed enough to keep her from suing, which she has already signaled. As for pets, many people in most locales are regarding them in a somewhat worshipful way, as though they are more human than humans. But gardening, no.

Let me say about Oak Park, Michigan what Ernest Hemingway said about Oak Park, Illinois: Wide lawns, narrow minds.
I have a neighbor who made her front yard a vegetable garden. It is absolutely beautiful - so well-cared for. Her neighbors have all stopped talking to her. Now, that could be because she’s a somewhat cold person but I think it’s because they can’t deal with a front yard that looks “different.” To me, it’s like a garden of Eden.
Who in the world would want to live in Oak Park, MI, poster city for the nanny state?
