Julie Bass says that she thought it would be “really cool” for the neighbors and kids to see a frontyard garden, but some community members don’t appreciate the vegetable plot.
“I think it’s sad that the City of Oak Park that’s already strapped for cash is paying a lot of money to have a prosecutor bothering us,” she told My Fox Detroit.
Bass has since started a blog — Oak Park Hates Veggies — to chronicle her battle with the authorities.
“We now find ourselves in a storm of controversy worthy of some high level mischief. Seriously?” she wrote in an entry. “It’s a GARDEN. It’s not a high crime or treason or murder. IT’S VEGETABLES. And yes, we did throw in a few flowers.”
