Spot on with your post.

Read the link to the law...conveniently provided in post #1.
The linked article states “legislation that bans local governments from enacting ordinances against homeowners from raising veggies in their yards.” It says nothing about HOA rules which a homeowner agreed to when they purchased.

If you look at it logically the whole article is silly.

Who in their right minds are going to plant corn, soy etc. etc.

The soil is crap, bugs are rampant along with local wild life, and with all the chemicals in the ground already, anything that actually survived, would have more carcinogens, than a cancer clinic!

Come on. Get real.

I did and suggest you do the same. The law prohibits governmental entities from passing ordinances or regulations. It does not prohibit HOAs from doing the same, nor does it address deed restrictions, both of which are agreed to by the homeowner when they purchase the property. Neither is a regulation or ordinance passed by a governmental body.

Right to grow front-yard veggies gets green light for Senate floor | Tampa Bay Times


Sen. Kathleen Passidomo, a Naples Republican, voted against the bill when it came up in 2018. She said she changed her vote Wednesday because of homeowners associations and other groups that are not covered by the bill and are able create their own regulations when it comes to vegetable gardens.


Access Denied


The bill only preempts local government rules, not rules or gardening restrictions set by homeowners associations or other groups.


People need to find something else to complain about.
