Oak Park Hates Veggies

Good morning folks. It’s a bit cooler today, and we’ve been scrabbling around for warmer clothes and moaning about the weather. We moan when it’s too hot, and we moan when it’s too cold. I thought it was just the British who moan about the weather, but it seems that it’s an international failing 😉

Looking at it positively, it’s a perfect day for transplanting some self sown veggies which are living dangerously on some of the paths. I’ll do a few of the strawberries which are spreading nicely as well if I get a chance.

I don’t know if you’ve heard of this case in Oak Park, US yet, so apologies if you’ve picked it up elsewhere. If you have already, sorry for the recap, but for those who haven’t, check out this blog.


A lady decided to replant her front garden with raised veg beds. She’d been forced to remove the turf that had been on it after the sewer under it cracked and needed replaced. Now the city want to take them to court for not having the right sort of garden. That’s the short version, anyway – do head on over to the blog for the longer version and offer some support. A fabulous example of red tape gone mad.
