Between you and the plants – backyard privacy
You’re woman, 52 years old and you prefer topless gardening. Who’s to stop you?
The neighbors might complain, mostly wives I suspect, but you’re not breaking any laws. It is well known that plants respond to human attention. Maybe some of the plants like it.
I don’t like gardening without a shirt on because 1) I usually kick up dust and such and don’t like the way that it feels, 2) I don’t like swatting insects that are attracted to the fleshy real estate.
If you are pestered too much by neighbors in Colorado, you can always move to California where anything goes more freely.
“Topless gardening: A human right or wrong?
Neighbors’ complaints prompt rule change; thong-clad couple vows to fightBOULDER, Colo. - A woman gardening wearing only a yellow thong and pink gloves has brought neighborhood complaints and new rules from a housing authority in Colorado.
Boulder Housing Partners plans to amend its rules so that tenants cover up when they're outside.
Several passers-by told Boulder police earlier this week that 52-year-old Catharine Pierce was topless while tending to her yard. Last year, she was threatened with eviction for gardening wearing only pasties and a thong.
Police responding to Wednesday's reports decided Pierce wasn't breaking any laws.”
