    That is insane. If I want to grow a garden on my own property, the only thing that should affect it is what I have previously signed on to.Iow, if I have a HOA to answer to, which specifies that I may or may not grow specific plants on my property, then nobody else has any say. This is one of the reasons I live in the country. Too freakin many busybodies worrying about superficialities.

    Crap, I voted wrong. Although, if we are talking "front yard", it should be illegal, no permits required.

    If gardens are allowed in front yards, there should be notice to potential home buyers before they buy in the neighborhood. Nothing looks worse than a dying garden at the end of the season, particularly corn. Others have a right to nice front yards with flowers so they should have warning, before they move in, if their neighbor is going to plant whatever the Hell he wants the front yard. What is next, chickens? goats? Pigs?

    Wait until the fertilizer sits in the sun for awhile, what a stench! Decreasing home values in that neighborhood is the price you might want to pay, others do not.

    People that want attractive neighborhoods have rights also.

    The backyard is a different story, do whatever you want back there, just keep it fenced off and don't play loud music. And don't even think about setting up a stand out on the street to sell your crap.

    The women that raised the issue should be saddled with a permit to eat.

    That was my thought, as well. An ordinance limiting noise after a certain hour would have been a better approach. Could also apply to lawnmowers, leaf blowers, etc. 8pm or 9pm would be reasonable, IMO.

Being a small town hasn't prevented it from having its share of political fighting.
    Do you know her reasoning?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    exactly what a REASONABLE person would expect.

    My guess would be menopause.
