No vegetables allowedOfficials have charged an Oak Park, Mich., homeowner with a crime for growing vegetables in her own front yard. Although Julie Bass’s vegetable garden is tidy, city planner Kevin Rulkowski says vegetables are “not what we want to see in a front yard.” The city code requires “suitable” vegetation, says Rulkowski, which he defines as “a nice, grass yard with beautiful trees and bushes and flowers.”
