    Unwitting gardener man tends marijuana plants
    Fri Jul 25, 11:11 AM ET


    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A 73-year-old Dutch man was astonished to learn from police that the begonias he had lovingly tended on his doorstep concealed a secret marijuana plantation.
    "Police officers suddenly noticed marijuana plants sprouting from his begonias," a police spokeswoman in The Hague said on Friday.
    The Hague pensioner promised to destroy the marijuana plants, which he believes were planted by local youngsters, while preserving his begonias.
    Earlier this month the Dutch government set up a task force to crack down on marijuana cultivation in the country.
    Growing marijuana is illegal in the Netherlands, but sales of it and other cannabis-related soft drugs in coffee shops have been tolerated for decades.

    That reminds me of a friend of mine who was growing cannabis plants in his grandma's village, and having his gran look after them when he wasn't there.

    Gran didn't have a clue.

    a friend of mine had his mother tend to his plants all summer while he was on holiday. but then his mother decided she wanted to try some as a reward for all her gardening efforts. she didn't like smoking it but she would make tea out of it and said it made her sleep like a baby.

    ^ At the tomato plant, I made the dumb mistake of planting in my mom's flower garden instead of her vegetable garden...

    There were a few sprouts around this avocado seed I planted, but nothing came out of either. My second try was in my closet at my old apartment, they got to about 3 ft then died. I'll stick to purchasing and enjoying...
