Amateurs of reality TV may have heard of Storage Wars, Shipping Wars, or Parking Wars. The increasing interest in vegetable gardens and other homegrown, healthy goodies have brought another kind of “war” to the courts: Vegetable Wars.
See, some houses get better light in the front yard than out back. And some neighbors find a vegetable garden a blight on the homogeneous landscape of manicured lawns and pastel facades. And so they petition towns and courts on matters of carrots, radishes or cilantro.
Thus, in cities from Orlando to Ferguson, MO, and in states from Michigan to Oklahoma, wars are fought, stiff fines imposed, or orders handed down over tomatoes, peppers and beans.
