(WKMG-TV) An Orlando man is fighting city officials to keep his vegetable garden in his front yard.
You have to step over radishes, wax beans and kale to get to Jason Helvingston’s front door in College Park.
However, his 25 x 25 foot micro-irrigated vegetable garden is against city code, and the city of Orlando has asked Helvingston to dig it up by Wednesday.
“I said, ‘You’ll take my house before you take my vegetable garden,'” he said. “There’s nothing wrong here, there’s nothing poisonous here. This is a sustainable plot of land.”
