Are you serious?   My urban lot is 75 X 125, and my gardening space is 60 X
12 feet--very shallow backyard.  BUT, I sell more than $1,000 a year in
gourmet veggies and berries.  Do I have to report this to someone?
Hopefully not.  Yeech!  I have been using the money to pay for equipment,
organic additives and more plants.  Now, I have to file another Schedule C?
Please say it's not so!
