A woman in Michigan faces 93 days of jail time for replanting her front yard with vegetable planting beds after it was torn up for a sewer replacement project. She is standing up for her property rights, demanding a jury trial, and the city of Oak Park is throwing the book at her.
I used to watch the show Victory Garden on PBS on weekend morning. The traditional Victory Garden was planted in WWI or WWII in back and front yards as a way to ease pressure on the food supply and to help the war effort. Is it me or is the boot of government falling too heavily on our necks nowadays.
One commenter recommended that she should plant bamboo if forced to replant her yard. That'll teach those complaining neighbors!
Another thing. With all the blight in Detroit nowadays, the city spends their time harassing THIS WOMAN?
