Michigan Resident Faces 93 Days in Jail For Vegetable Garden

RE: Michigan Resident Faces 93 Days in Jail For Vegetable Garden
*edited for redundancy.

I am a bit torn on this one- Personally, I dont want my neighbor growing a cornfield in his front lawn as it would hurt MY property value. I dont want junk cars strewn across his property either for the same reasons.

I know that where I live there (A city in Michigan) there are laws as to what folks can and cannot have in their front yard- Gardens being listed. There is also laws regarding upkeep of the lawn etc. (if you dont mow , the city will come after so long, mow your yard and bill you a nice fine with an upcharge)... To me, this is okay.

I understand that a homeowner has rights to their property, but if "their" right infringes upon mine... I think things like a city telling you that you cannot own a Pit Bull is ridiculous. I think the city mandating "eye sore" laws is okay. I also agree with noise ordinance as well as I have lived next to a 24 hour "party" house with loud music blaring at all hours.

Again, I am torn because I can see that she wasnt hurting anyone- But I also can see someone moving in and growing a field of corn next door and it makes me cringe... Thats what backyards are for.
