Gotta give the growers an "A" for effort, but we should have our first killing frost in 3 weeks or so. If the cops had been thinking, they'd just have set up surveillance - the plant owners will have to show up to harvest them soon. Then they could have had the plants and the growers.

Apparently money isn't the only thing that doesn't grow on trees in York County!

You say that jokingly, but I most certainly find a correlation between the increasing crackdown on marijuana users to the dramatic increase in methamphetamine production.

Face it, pot was the cheap and easy-to-get drug of choice for years - and there's still little evidence to suggest it's a "gateway drug" to harder drug use, despite what high school health class likely pounded into your brain. Yet it's easy to control and enforce drug laws on, because, let's face it - pot heads don't shoot back. The local police can easily bust a stoner eating Doritos on his couch than they can a crack house in the projects. As a result, pot is more expensive and harder to find...

Enter crystal meth - find someone crazy and dumb enough to manufacture it, and you've got yourself a new, cheap and easy to find drug. Only problem is, where pot's biggest side effect was mucnhies, meth's biggest side effect is death. And not just for the users, but the cooks and whoever happens to be within the "blast radius."

So yeah, I have a problem with the police running around and pounding their chests over pulling a couple of plants out of hanging baskets. It's just making the drug "problem" worse.

Darn good idea, keeps it up, away from the deer and helps keep the roots from becoming water-logged.

I did this, on a much smaller scale, with my strawberries last year and it worked great!
