A man in Georgia (the state, not the country), was fined $25,000 for growing too many vegetable in his backyard. City officials in Canada have bulldozed gardens belonging to people who replaced their front lawns with food. A woman in Tulsa, OK used her edible garden to treat her diabetes and high-blood pressure. The city cut it down.
Is your garden illegal?
