Huge victory for Sacramento city front yard gardens

The Sacramento City Council voted 8 to 1 for the Front Yard Landscape Ordinance with the deletion of subsection "c", "...which had sought to restrict the growing of fruits and vegetables to 30% of the landscape and four feet in height." (

A Sacramento Bee editorial, Needed: A peas treaty... Does council know beans about gardens?, weighed in on the subject the other day.

Get out those veggie seed packets, head for the veggie aisle of your local nursery, and check out the following books for inspiration. Don't forget to plant some fruit too!


  1. Hi Angela,
    I know a lot of people don't like memes, but someone tagged me with one, and so I felt compelled to continue it (besides, it was a nice one). Anyway, I chose you for the Thinking Blogger Award. We're gardening in the Santa Cruz area, and I've enjoyed reading your blog.

  2. an important victory! how stupid and petty can local government get to even THINK of banning veggies?

  3. What Veg will you be growing?I am waiting for my allotment still (and xmas).I might try to grow tomatoes and mini veg maybe...
