CraftyFox said:I feel like I've had more than undue resistance in this neighborhood when we moved in. Everything from nasty comments from the neighbors (after I told her to stop coming in my yard and destroying my plants.), to letters and fines from the city. They've even made it illegal to use any type of wire fencing here!! I mean who needs garden fencing when there are voles, rabbits, and deer running everywhere with little to eat?
The neighbor who likes to stomp and pull my plants finally put a privacy fence up this year, lest she be tempted.. The extra powdery mildew zone was a great tradeoff.
This is a mow-it-down-till-brown type of town here.
I've got plans though, and we aren't leaving! For starters, I plan to send out coupons next year to people in my neighborhood, who don't treat their yards, for a free plant and installation into their yards. I figure that will give me an opportunity to meet some of the people around here with similar intents and maybe we can work on the rest together.
