OKC is once again threatening the abundance of my urban garden-yard.

Oklahoma City has served me with a code violation and is claiming that I can’t have anything taller than 18 inches between the sidewalk and the street.  This is something new, as in the 16 years I have lived here I have yet to hear this claim.  I also seem to be having a problem finding it in the municipal code.  Not light reading, that’s for sure.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the abundance that Oklahoma City finds so threatening.
