I have very little luck with plants. The only plants that seem to grow in my yard are weeds. This story is not about my brown thumb, it's about a woman with a passion for organic vegetables and her desire to grow them in her yard. The hitch in the get along is it's her front yard.

The city fathers of Oak Park Illinois think front yard gardening is bad for business. They think it's so bad they are threating the lady with a jail term! What do you think? Would you be upset if your neighbor decided to grow crops in the front yard?

Oh if only Casey Anthony had grown a garden, she might actually be punished for her terrible deeds but alas, this is America where justice is blind and sometimes not exactly on the cutting edge of common sense.
