Front Yard Gardeners Unite!!!

Just a quick post about a story which is spreading like weeds, not just here in Michigan, but across the globe.   A family in Oak Park, Michigan has planted their front yard with a beautifully maintained vegetable garden and are facing persecution at the hands of the City as a result.   Here and here are a couple links to local and national news clips about the story.  And click here for this citizen’s own account of her “adventure” so far in blog format:

Although I personally don’t live in a subdivision, and don’t have to worry about complaining neighbors, in addition to the huge garden and greenhouse we plant, we are also Front Yard Gardeners.  Here’s a shot of our house taken last summer:

Tomatoes and Peppers and Basil, OH MY!!!  :-) 

Please stop on over to Julie’s Blog or her Facebook Page and show your support!  I know I’ll be watching the outcome of this story closely!   GO, Julie!!!

    You are so sweet! Life has been so busy lately and I’ve barely even made time to make anything new, much less post about it. But you may still see updates from time to time, so don’t lose hope! :-)
