And here we see the first of the summer squash and the first of the blue jade corn making an appearance.

Be careful

Full moon Friday the 13th and mercury is retrograde. Just saying

This is one of our Hopi tobacco plant. It has a very high nicotine content. So strong in fact if you smoke you will hallucinate .We are going to use it to make an organic pesticide . And of course I will have to smoke some.

New from me at Rare: Just because you don’t like something doesn’t mean it needs to be banned

This week, I wrote about dumb regulations on vegetable gardens and taxi alternatives alike, borrowing the title from a shorter post I made a couple days ago. Check it out:

First they came for your beer. Then they came to stop your charity efforts.

Now they’re after your vegetable garden—“they,” of course, being your local busybody bureaucrats.

I’m fortunate to live in a fairly garden-friendly city. My neighbors across the street have planted vegetables in most of their front yard. Two houses over there’s a chicken coop topped with solar panels. I’ve put in a few tomato and pepper plants in my tiny garden area. This summer, I’m even working with an urban farm that rents plots all over the city in empty lots and unused fields.

For many Americans, though, gardening ain’t easy.

While vegetable gardens were once actively promoted by the government, in the last few decades they’ve come under fire in many municipalities around the country:

  • An Orlando family was threatened with fines as high as $500 per day for their front yard vegetable garden—apparently they’d run afoul of a city ordinance requiring people to plant grass, shrubs, and other “traditional landscaping” options on their properties.
  • In Miami Shores, FL, a couple was forced to uproot their 17-year-old vegetable garden in the face of city fines of up to $1500 per month.
  • In Oak Park, MI, a woman was threatened with 90+ days of jail time for her vegetable garden. After she hired a lawyer, the case was temporarily dismissed, but could be renewed at any time.
  • In Tulsa, OK, city officials actually destroyed a woman’s garden for the “crime” of having non-tree plants taller than 12 inches in her front yard. She was out of work and had been relying on her garden for food while money was tight.
  • And then there’s Oakland, CA, where you can grow all the fresh vegetables you want… but if you want to sell any of them, be prepared to buy a pricey permit from the city to do so.

All of these anti-garden laws are born out of two dangerous convictions: First, that the government should be allowed to regulate peaceful, voluntary activities that people do with their own property. Second, that not liking something is ample justification for banning it.

Both of these are dead wrong. While vegetable gardens may not seem like a big deal, allowing this type of government invasion into our personal lives sets a terrible precedent.

This same busybody view of the role of government can be observed in another story getting a lot of attention right now: Virginia’s ban on taxi alternatives Lyft and Uber. If you’re not familiar with this situation, it’s basically the anti-veggie garden mindset on corrupt, corporatist steroids.

Read the whole thing here.

I don’t even have anything to add because this whole excerpt is so excellent.
