Watch Out Gardeners, You Could Be Next

A woman in Michigan faces 93 days in jail because she planted a garden in her front yard.

Yes, you read that right.


 “The price of organic food is kind of through the roof,” said Julie Bass.

So, why not grow your own? However, Bass’ garden is a little unique because it’s in her front yard.

“We thought it’d be really cool to do it so the neighbors could see. The kids love it. The kids from the neighborhood all come and help,” she said.

Bass’ cool garden has landed her in hot water with theCity of Oak Park. Code enforcement gave her a warning, then a ticket and now she’s been charged with a misdemeanor.
