    County cites farmer for too many vegetables

    DeKalb County has cited a man for growing too many vegetables on his own land, Channel 2 Action News reported.

    Steve Miller of Clarkston said he plans to fight the county and has gotten his 2-acre property rezoned so that he can have his garden. But he still faces nearly $5,000 in fines, Miller told Channel 2.

    Miller has been growing a variety of vegetables for 15 years, and his neighbors support him. He sells what he grows at local markets and gives some away, he said.

    "It's a way of life, like it's something in my blood,” Miller told Channel 2.

    The county says Miller grows more crops on his land than allowed under zoning regulations. Code enforcement officers began ticketing him in January for the zoning violation and for allegedly having unpermitted employees on the property.

    The county declined to comment because the case is still pending.

    It's necessary for officials to crackdown on those poor examples of people who are self-sufficient.
