Last night a police helicopter circled our neighborhood for a good 10-20 minutes. OK, this is not exactly unusual in Los Angeles, but on a couple of passes, their lights seemed to be focused on our open garage. Currently, I have two flats of tomato and pepper seeds sprouting under lights in that garage. We keep the door open until we go to bed to remind us to turn off the lights (plants need to sleep too ). David suggested that maybe the cops would show up at our door assuming we were growing something illegal. He was delighted at the thought (this is David=:bounce: :roll: :bounce: ) but I was horrified . What if they took my babies in as evidence? What if they hurt them before someone with experience informed them that these were produce!!!! David hung around the window for another half-hour, eagerly waiting for a squad car or two, while I sat grimly with my seed packets, looking to see if I had any seeds left for replanting. Nothing happened. . . Yet. Life in the big city.
