Florida Couple Wins Right to Plant Vegetables in Front Yard

After six years, Hermine Ricketts and her husband, Tom Carroll, finally won the right to plant vegetables in their front yard.  They’d had a vegetable garden years before in their front yard where the sun was good, but the neighborhood banned front yard gardens stating they were “unsightly.” That finally changed on July 1st when a Florida law went into effect which nullifies the banning of residential gardens. Get the details in this article from NPR.

  1. Such uplifting stories. Thank you for sharing.

  2. “After nearly six years of fighting … I will once again be able to legally plant vegetables in my front yard,” Ricketts said in a statement. “I’m grateful to the Legislature and the governor for standing up to protect my freedom to grow healthy food on my own property.”
    ~ How crazy that home owners don’t always have the right to grow their own food on their property! If well kept, a kitchen garden can be just as beautiful as a flower garden.

  3. The garden story reminds me of when I was growing up. My grandmother’s sister life a block away, and you entered her house through her garden. It was always well maintained, and “fenced off” with grape vines all around the perimeter. The cat story is just too sweet for words.

  4. More good news. I can’t believe that people were not allowed to grow veg in their front gardens

  5. Yes, yes, YES … spread the GOOD news, it exists in abundance and is so overwhelming shadowed by the ugly news (with intent). I’m intentionally news ignorant more often than not, and admit so openly, I don’t like being filled with ugly … but I sure do love the GOOD-GOOD news! Thank you for sharing. 🙂

    • Yay! Thank you for understanding the need for good news. I stopped watching the mainstream news a couple of years ago, though now, I sometimes peek at the headlines and read a little bit. I would love for the percentage of good news on TV and elsewhere to increase to at least 50 percent or better. You are right about good news existing in abundance. 🙂
