Very interesting article located at:

The article discusses how people living in subdivisions/developments are removing the grass from a portion of their yards to plant vegetables and other edible landscaping. Pretty interesting.

I could not post the article due to copyright restrictions. Sorry.

I grew tomatoes, cucumbers, various types of peppers and sunflowers on my patio for seven years before some old coot on the Homeowners Association filed a complaint that I violated article such and such or the homeowners bylaws. "Illegal plants"
I was to get rid of the plants or face a fine of $25 per day for each day they were on my patio.

I just brought them inside.

Many developments do not allow planting of fruits or vegetables because they "attract pests and insects"
