There is a video on the link where Fox stated that the city had dismissed the charge about the garden to give more time to review the statute. But the city did issue a citation for unlicensed dogs, which the owner said had been licensed properly and showed paperwork. The court when called by Fox stated that anyone who receives a citation must appear in court and if their paperwork is OK the charges will be dropped. Harassment?? You bet yah.

My advice to Julie Bass, move to a community who appreciates good gardeners and loves pets. It is not Oak Park, Michigan.

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. Most are against gardening, because they’re lazy, vain, wouldn’t do it themselves, and are simply against their neighbors doing or having anything.

People are getting more weird and illogical every year now. Maybe the default ahead is what our nation needs to get it back in shape.

Does a person have to live far out in the country to even begin to be free? In a city they have cameras everywhere, police everywhere and a few thousand rules about how to do every little thing.

Some whiny tight butt definitely has some agenda against her. Next they’ll complain about what color her living room curtains are. Good luck to her.

I have a garden, two front yards and no back yard (or maybe it’s two back yards and no front yard). What to do, what to do.

My advice to Ms. Bass is to send a $250 donation to the local Fraternal Order of Police or Sheriff’s Office. That should help her cucumbers grow freely.

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.
