    I think you have a cute little manicured garden! Nicer yard than the ones across the street. 🙂 Prolly one of your neighbors complained… at least that how it works here in Western Colorado.

    Hang in there! just refuse
    when they come on property ,they are trespassing..

    I live in England and more and more people are growing their own vegetables.It’s not just that times are hard,people want to know that their food is chemical free and are sick of paying pounds for a bit of broccoli or a cabbage.Good luck and keep it up..garden looks really healthy.

    Probable issue is that you use too much water intermittently … If you had a lawn you would have to water constatntly to keep it green or risk looking like the other dust bags across the street.. Anybody stealing your produce yet?

    • ridiculed says:

      I’ve heavily mulched, and the soil is well amended. Water for half an hour, twice a week, with 100+ temps for the last 2 weeks. I use a low pressure sprinkler, and I water at dew points if I can. I’d like to think my consumption has been low. We’re near the bottom of a dead-end street, and my immediate neighbors are very supportive. Theft or vandalism is always possible, but I have bigger stresses. None noticed as of yet. Thanks for clicking.

    Way to go on your garden. It looks great. Your story was shared here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=365090546897505&set=a.223559677717260.54765.148279598578602&type=1&theater&notif_t=photo_comment
    Would love to hear your input to the comments.

    I think your front yard looks absolutely amazing! I work for St. Louis Green – we have already featured your story on our blog (http://stlouisgreen.com/blog/), and we will also feature this in our weekly e-news this week. You are an inspiration!

    I would strongly suggest you send copies of ALL these comments to both the council & the mayor AND a copy of the film of your stalker – perhaps they will FINALLY get that A: code enforcment is being nothing more than a big Bully and that the city is NOT getting good publicity from them allowing the bullying….. they can do much better if they HELP you not harrass you and the ENTIRE nation is watching them 🙂 — i profoundly hope you feel better soon.

    I am a urban community gardener and support your “Yarden” 100%.
    We have a gardener who had a “Victory Garden” from the WW2 era.
    This from Wikipedia:

    Victory gardens, also called war gardens or food gardens for defense, were vegetable, fruit and herb gardens planted at private residences and public parks in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Germany[1] during World War I and World War II to reduce the pressure on the public food supply brought on by the war effort. In addition to indirectly aiding the war effort these gardens were also considered a civil “morale booster” — in that gardeners could feel empowered by their contribution of labor and rewarded by the produce grown. This made victory gardens become a part of daily life on the home front.
    SALUTE!!

    Where/to whom at the City of Ferguson can people send letters or emails showing support for you?

    • ridiculed says:

      you can do a search for the email and mail addresses for all City Staff. I’ve yet to actually give it out, or to advocate sending correspondence as of yet. Many have though, and it’s been appreciated. I’m just waiting for the proper time if I need to use the public’s might. The hearing on Wednesday, July 25th may change that though. Thank you for the continued support Judith. I meant to send you a thank you letter, but it’s been a hectic week, and I’ve just not gotten around to it. Best wishes always.

    “The Edible Front Yard” by Ivette Soler is a great book all about how to disguise a front yard edible garden by just applying a few ornamental design techniques. Basically, a lot of people cannot even recognize a vegetable garden unless it is planted in obvious rows.

    It’s at the St Louis County Library.

    • ridiculed says:

      I appreciate the advice, but it shouldn’t have to be hidden, especially when there are no ordinances against having the garden in the first place. I actually planned on making the garden more aesthetically pleasing, but the City forced me to plant my garden in early April. This caused me to rush and I did the best I could with a limited time frame. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Unconventional…..but I think it looks just fine. Good for you!

    Karl,

    I just read the article in the Post, so glad you came out on top!

    I am a Filmmaker and would love to talk with you about your story. I think it would make for a very interesting doc and the story could also help to curb future abuse of homeowners-renters like yourself.

    Feel free to give me an email or call. I am currently traveling but would love to hear back from you.

    Congrats again,

    I’m a gardener and find yours to be very well-done and kept given the pressures you were under. It is a victory garden. Continued success!

    This is a great film about how to grow food the way it has grown since the beginning, with no plowing, no weeding, it feeds, and waters itself.
    Basically, the guy in the film puts down a thick layer of local wood chips from a local tree trimming/ cutting service [ hence it is quite cheap].

    Then he plants his seeds on top of the wood chips, and puts just enough wood chips over the seeds to protect them.
    His production is great with no work, just planting and harvesting.

    I thought it was worth the time to watch.

  16. Hello. I’m the potager urbain from Canada. we can help each other in this case. Just email me so we can see what we can do.
    lepotagerurbain@gmail.com

  17. Just a thought, but I would suggest putting a donate link on your front page (maybe on the right bar). I’m sure a lot of people want to support you with their wallet as well as words, and it’s a tad hidden here.

    • Lisa says:

      I agree with Cindy. I see a donation option to help with legal fees but I know that I and others would like to donate simply to help you continue doing what you are doing. It absolutely should be one of the permanent tabs along the top or whatever is most obvious. I would then share it with everyone I knew! Seriously! You really must! What you are doing is so important! Please!
