Wow - the crime rate must be awfully low in MI if they have to go after local gardeners who choose to grow their own healthy organic vegetables. I'm just gobsmacked.
So you can grow a tree, a bush, grass in your front yard, but these lovely vegetables are not considered suitable” live plant material?
I am sick. I buy organic, much to the chagrin of my husband (we're a 1 income family). If I had the means to grow it, I certainly would. It's her house - let her do with it what she wants!
