They called the county on me for having a wood pile in view from the street. It turned into a small nightmare and I'm not looking to go through that again.
Wow. That is rough. We live in a very liberal town, and a large number of folk have front yard gardens. Our neighbor behind us has chickens. I think we can have three.
I'm not sure what your yard is like, but if you were determined, you could possibly dig a hole, and throw your compost in there, covering it in some way that wouldn't stir up the neighbors. That might be more effort than it's worth, however.
