|This makes her "cringe" when she drives by|
So this is all personal with her apparently. No one else has a problem with it. Ton of residents have complimented me on my great garden. There is nothing in the lease that says I can't do what I've been doing. Other residents have even grown corn in their yard (that was actually a factor when I was trying to decide whether to have corn in my yard!), which seems to be her primary issue, just theirs haven't gotten as high.
My husband's impression after talking to her that she really just wanted to talk about it, but the way she went about it, leaving a notice on the door saying we have to get rid of the garden by August 12 was certainly not the way to do it.
So here we are. We have this meeting on Monday to "look forward to" (edited 8/8/11: the outcome of that meeting can be found here). In the meantime, I'd like your help. I'd like there to be no doubt in the property owners' minds that I have every right to have this garden. Please go to the Sun Communities webpage and submit a comment letting them know that I was told before we ever signed a lease, which didn't forbid the garden, that it was okay to have an extensive garden here in Hamlin MHC in Webberville, MI. I submitted the papers I was asked to and was never told they were denied. Let her bosses know that it would be very wrong for them to deny our family all this good healthy food that we are depending on to feed our family. Just remember to be nice, since at this point, we believe the owners will be on our side, it is just the site manager that has issues. (Edited 8/8/11: Please read the update before sending messages)
Oh, and she specifically said, when my husband commented on the possibility of media exposure, that "I don't want to be on the six o'clock news!", so let's help the lady out and get this resolved nicely over the weekend, shall we? *wink*
