I kept them anyway.

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 might be old now but I've learned from both my mistakes AND my accomplishments in this life. I know when to take a stand for what's right for me, just as I know when to politely and quietly bail...

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.

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.

Any attempt at Nationalized gun control will be the start of the next civil war. I saw a bumper sticker that I like which said "When you come for mine, bring your own".

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.

You are exactly right AW. I think the government officials know that as well. That's probably the only thing that's holding them back.

second amendment wrote:
<quoted text>
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.
Biden further said that executive order is an option. It is getting scary to live in America. It's a slippery slope and we are rapidly sliding. O.K., no more said, but to those who care what is going on, keep tabs on the news. Rapid changes are coming, and they are not positive for liberty.America has always been the beacon of freedom. We have been a refuge for people of all nationalities who seek safe haven from oppressive governments....and I want it to stay that way.

my front lawn is continuous with my lawn at the side of the house and last year I had a vegetable and fruit garden growing there with grapes growing on an arbor, strawberry vines, blueberries, blackberries, boysenberries, sprawling tomato and cucumber plants, asparagus, peppers, various herbs and spices which were interspersed among different flowering plants...the neighbors loved it and I got no hassle from the city inspector. I guess I they could have given me hard time if they wanted to, but they didn't.

I look for that civil war to begin soon enough. Our government is treading on some very thin ice when they start to talk about disarming us.

We know all too well the history behind what happens when you take basic rights away from the innocents. Even two World wars that our OWN men and women fought and died in so that others could remain free..

Now the very government that they took their orders from, wants to take OUR freedoms?

There will be no foreign lands offering to come over here to help us win our freedom from oppression... No one is going to come over here to help the American citizens fight it's own government....

I'm really leaving after this post, but I can't resist a funny story. I was reading a list of silly laws from countries around the world, when I came across this little item, I believe it was England, but I'm not positively sure. I'll look it up later: Anyway, this country passed an "anti-flatulence" tax per cow. Can you imagine??The reason for this is that cows cause environmental pollution with the gas they emit. I wonder how much they would tax Una for his malodorous emissions!!!! LOL Once again, everyone, good night.
