The Horse's illegal activity continues

I picked up my prescription meds out at Kaiser last week and checked on my snow peas in their planters. Three are doing quite nicely. My hope is that these will last long enough for me to harvest some actual snow peas, as I planted early this year. Last year, the plants grew nicely at Kaiser, but the Kaiser folks pulled them all out before I could harvest some snow peas. I got them back by eating some of the cherry tomatoes they planed in their stead. Now that marijuana is legal in California, I'd love to plant some marijuana seeds out there and see how long it took for them to pull them out. I could pretend it was my protest against "Big Pharma," but I'd actually just be doing it so my inner adolescent hippy side could chuckle. Alas, I have no marijuana seeds, and the weather isn't right anyway. Have you ever thought of being a juvenile delinquent, even if you're not a juvenile any more? Are you growing anything right now?

I am growing something Pony...I have something like a green house...up there..silly thing..but well, I love it..Dad gets to drink his morning tea in that with a chair and a table..he reads his newspaper there..pretty cool..I will upload the pictures when sprouts are really visible...they are just coming up...if the shade provided by us lasts this summer (our summers are disgustingly hot and plastic does melt on terrace), then dad has promised to have one more of those green house for me..this time proper one...and more pots and mud...I am praying it will be good...by the way, our winters are as good as your summers..or spring.

@vandana7 29 C is still in the mid-80s F, right? I remember the formula: F = 9/5 C + 32. But I'm too lazy to take out my caculator. In my head, it comes out to about 87 F. Warm, but bearable.

The thought of growing pot at Kaiser is funny to me. But then they really might get mad and destroy my snow peas even earlier than they did last year. Anyway, it's too cold to grow pot outside right now. At least I think it is.

@Jessicalynnt Hmm...maybe I could do it far from my snow peas so people don't make the connection.

I'm from a family of folks with an overactive adolescent side. One year not long ago my parents decided to ban soft drinks at the family reunion. Most of us don't drink soft drinks anyhow, but discussion at the family reunion revealed that most of us had to resist the temptation to buy a bottle of Sprite or 7-Up, dump out the contents, fill it with water and then bring it along to swig from at the party. I don't think I'll ever grow out of the urge to be a juvenile delinquent...

Oh, I wish you'd done it! And then given them a swig near the end of the party. I'm glad I'm not the only juvenile delinquent around here.

@TheHorse It's probably a good thing we refrained...my mother had NO sense of humour whatsoever.

Maybe they would tend the pot plants more carefully than they did the snow peas. But, you never know.

I would like to be a juvenile delinquent every now and then, but there are cameras everywhere and one just cannot get away with anything delinquent-related these days, which definitely ruins the fun of many. Not growing a thing here.

I wonder if anyone would actually get mad at me for planting snow peas at Kaiser. Hopefully, they'd just laugh with me.

Do it! I need some partners in crime. Snow pea seeds cost about $1.50 per packet. I'd imagine they'd do OK in the parts of England where it doesn't freeze too often.

Snow peas are fairly frost resistant. We harvested a few last Winter at the preschool, on my balcony, and even at Ground Squirrel Gardens.

Will you be growing "herb"? There are so many strains these days! It's a real science.

@TheHorse Yeah, I think we are allowed to grow 4 plants and, true 100's to thousands of them, some of my favorite are Orange Crush, Kosher Kush, Girl scout cookies, Blue Dream, Dutch treat, that's a few anyway.

@TRBRocks420 I still have to learn about that "other" psychoactive component that's not THC. What makes them your favorites? For me, I'd like mellow, still can function, music sounds better, mind doesn't wander TOO much, don't get paranoid, even with strangers. Any recommendations?

LOL! I still am a juvenile delinquent, pony! Ask any of the myLotters who have met me! I am quite sure they will all agree with me! All my plants, inside and out, are still growing well. That is really unusual for a Missouri winter! We are still harvesting cherry tomatoes from our front flower bed. Uhm... I'm just curious... don't you clean your stash before you use it or are you one of those people who pitch all the seeds out as you drive by abandoned lots and hopes to harvest something? I've never understood how no one else notices the plants before those people can harvest them? SMH!
