lala, I seen that story about the couple in Florida and their garden. Apparently, they have a city ordinance against growing vegetable gardens in the Front yard. Wonder why they didn't put it in the back like most people do. They were warned in November. There are lots of ordinances like that in many cities. Some won't let you have a fence all the way around your house, only back yards.
I once lived in another very rural area. An unincorporated area of this 'other' city, mind you.... There, I was told I couldn't have my poultry, aka chickens, because I was a mere 100 feet from the agricultural line. BUT: For a "nominal yearly fee", they would grandfather my flock in and I could keep them.

I kept them anyway.

Speaking of chicken earlier, dog lovers check your treats...
Firms withdraw chicken jerky pet treats over antibiotics
Two of the nation’s top retailers of chicken jerky dog treats are voluntarily withdrawing several popular brands after New York state agriculture officials said they may be contaminated with unapproved antibiotics.
Nestle Purina PetCare Co. officials announced Wednesday that they’re withdrawing Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats until further notice. Officials at Milo’s Kitchen, which is owned by the Del Monte Corp., announced they are voluntarily recalling the firm's Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats from shelves nationwide.

I think they are planning on using the chicken for human consumption instead

do you agree with this ordinance?
Yes, I do. If you move into an area or neighborhood within city limits you should make sure you can live with their ordinances on the books. The people vote for these and if they move there in a neighborhood that has those ordinances on the books you either live within them or move. If I had a nice house next door or across the street and my yard was manicured and landscaped I wouldn't be too happy to see a big garden taking away from that. It just wouldn't look right no matter how nice that garden looked, whether you shared it with the neighbors even. To some it would be a real eyesore. Our society has always had laws, rules, and regulations. If they can't put it in the back yard then they should move where they can grow in all around their house if they want to. That is just the way it is. Just like the fence not being in the front anymore (meter readers etc..hazard), leash laws etc. It is a real nice garden though.

Couple fined for having garden: Take that, urban vegetable gardening trend (+video)

A couple fined for having a garden in Orlando, Fla. has been ordered to dig up their vegetables or pay a $500 a day fine until they do.

Although there have been changes in municipal laws in recent years to adjust for the swell of urban gardens and yuppies-turned-horticulturalis ts,(we ran a story about this a couple of years back), a slew of zoning ordinances limit the reach of suburban green thumbs. Turns out that the well manicured lawn still has a lot of sway – and that a lot of neighbors are less pleased with squash and cabbage than with pansies and daffodils.

2. The government can't take what they don't know you have.
(Firearms).
3. The underlying "powers" don't WANT us to be self sufficient. Growing a personal garden is being self sufficient. They want us to rely on them completely. Rely on them, depend on no one but them. Even Mj, an herb, is still illegal and we all know it's healing properties.
(Food and medical)
I'll die fighting before I'll be told what I can and can't grow for my own consumption, on my own property. Property that I've paid taxes on and will continue to pay taxes on for the rest of my life..
The day they make a tomato plant illegal, is the day I pack up what I can carry in one trip and move to another country.....
Central Canada is looking better all the time..
the second amendment was put in there by the founding fathers because they knew that we needed to be able to protect ourselves if our government ever went rogue with leaders that ignore the Constitution. I think this country is now perilously close to this point. With those words of Joe Biden, we should demand that he be removed from office.

Yes, and where I came from, there were rules about what color your house can be painted. The point that I was trying to make is that ordinances and laws are eating away our individual liberties, and we don't blink an eye. We gradually accept more and more rules until we wake up one day and find that we are no longer living in the America we knew. It's like the old adage: If you put a frog in hot water, he will jump out. But if you put him in room temperature water and gradually turn up the heat, he will be boiled to death without trying to save himself. If I were in that situation, I would start a petition to appeal the ordinance, in other words, work within the system. But that is because I'm a coward, and too old to be an activist. In all practicality, it would be a long process and not likely be successful because of general apathy and people not wanting to get involved.

running away may not always be a good choice, because there will come a day when there will be nowhere else to run. Sometimes you just have to stand your ground.

I choose my battles wisely. Some are just not worth the fight when you consider the variables and the outcome. Expectations and outcome, equated with reasoning and common sense...

ok that's a good point, but let's take Lala's analogy with the frog and let's say they "turn up the heat" and now tell you that you can't have a garden in your backyard either because your neighbors think it's an eyesore to them. According to your logic, it seems that your neighbor's preferences take precedence over yours, so would you agree if an ordinance like this was passed? I am not saying this simply to be argumentative, the point is where do you draw the line between your rights and the law, or are you one who will abide by the laws no matter if you disagree with it or no matter how ridiculous the law may be, because there are certainly a lot of ridiculous laws out there which are still in the books that no one even challenges.

That's why you treasure getting out away from people and city limits. There are some crazy ordinances across the country. I seen a list one time that would crack you up someone would even think of it let alone make it an ordinance. It is the world we live in.

People are free to fight the ordinances with organizing petitions and attending town meetings. You can change stupid ordinances if you try. The voters and taxpayers have a say on how their city/county is run. Some people move into gated communities and know there are rules there to live there. If you think they are unfair you can try to change them or simply find somewhere to move that suits your needs. Like "Nope" said. You pick your battles. One neighbor wouldn't do it. I have challenged many laws, rules, and regulations in my day. I know how it works. I know also most people want changes but are too lazy to organize to change a damn thing. Just the way people are. Despite annoying ordinance or our laws, this is still the greatest country on Earth and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
