The municipal war against…vegetable gardens

In America, and places beyond, homeowners’ vegetable gardens have become a target of municipal officials.

They’re beautiful, offer fresh food, conserve water, and are peaceful uses of homeowners’ private property: yet for it all, vegetable gardens still offend officials’ laughable sense of what’s appropriate.

That appropriateness in this case is little more than a dull person’s sense of propriety scarcely matters: the regulations trump good ideas.

Here’s a link to a fine story about misguided municipal badgering of vegetable gardeners: City officials are waging a war on gardens.

Hat tip to the Wisconsin Happy Farm for the link.
