A pair of thugs if let loose in a garden.
A raised flowerbed can be contained with brick, paver, natural stone, with a several-inch mulch barrier between the containment method and the planting. They can also be contained further within the bed so as to prevent them from spreading toward other plants in that bed. And yes of course you can plant them in pots. Lovely decorative ceramic or terracotta pots. And you can even put those pots - right on top of the flowerbed.

If you have a garden service, ask them not to spray insecticide etc. on the plants.
Love it. Do any folks in the Villages use diatomaceous earth in and on the perimeter of beds instead of insecticides? It's a common alternative here in New England, no idea how it would fare in Florida. Climate differences and all.

Anyone know how this would affect deed restrictions?

The clear exploitation of this law would be to plant corn or beans or other tall crops to create a privacy screen.
Are the "governments" of the Villages recognized as valid governmental entities by the county and state governments? If they are, then they might affect deed restrictions. If it isn't, and the term "government" is a Villages-specific designation, then no it wouldn't affect them at all.

The bill, if passed into law, would prevent the *government* from banning it. In other words, it'd be a county and town zoning thing. The town in which Fenney is located, would not be allowed to prohibit a Villager living in the Fenney portion of the Villages from planting a garden on their front lawn. But the Villages, being a private entity, might be allowed to still place the restriction within their entity-owned community.

Far as front yard vegetables. Date palms? Blueberries they actually make a nice hedge. They flower, they turn red in the fall and you get fruit-IF YOU CAN BEAT THE BIRDS.

Far as EXPLOITED LAW? WOW who would figure. Certainly not the people who use SPECIAL PARKING because not there grandma needs it. SERVICE DOGS?

As to corn? First of all you need about 6 rows of corn for it to properly pollinate. Between the CROWS and the raccoons-FAT CHANCE
