Dispatches from the Metropolitan Yard-Farm

So, it looks like a certain city gardening family that we all know and love has recently trademarked the terms "urban homestead," "urban homesteading," and others. Now, they're shutting down blogs, Facebook pages, and other organizations that use those terms. Niiiice.

Kate @ Living the Frugal Life has written a much more concise account of the goings-on than I can right now. Make sure to check out her recent post on the issue as well as the Take Back Urban Home-steading(s) (heh) Facebook page.

By the way, be wary of the "news" stories linked from PTF's website—it looks like they're writing their own press releases and posting them to Yahoo News.
