Nico’s Nuggets: How to Grow a Plant In Your Backyard
I just started growing. I came across some seeds and put them in a flowering pot with soil and keep it outside in the sun, and I water it each morning. Is this good enough? Will it grow OK? I’m not trying to grow anything special, just something for myself so I can stop spending so much money on buying it. Any thoughts are appreciated, and thank you for the years a great info! — Brandon via the mailbag at NicosNuggets@hightimes.com
Greetings, Brandon… Thanks for reading HIGH TIMES and for the kind words!
It is certainly that time of year, when the weather is warming and people are thinking about easy yet effective ways to grow some head stash and save a few bucks. Growing outdoors is often a cheaper method than growing inside, as you save money on grow lamps and electricity. But there are some obstacles to overcome outdoor growing as well.
For starters, outdoor growers entering the game this late in the season (May/June) need to consider the length of available “veg” time for their plants before the shortening of daylight hours forces the plants into their flowering phase.

Homing Pigeon Flies Ecstasy into Kuwait
One of those quirky stories on Fox News informed us this week that authorities in Kuwait intercepted a homing pigeon that had been outfitted with a little backpack containing 178 ecstasy pills.
Kuwaiti authorities had apparently “tracked” the bird as it flew in from Iraq. A BBC News report suggests the airborne trafficker’s error was to fly too close to a border post, where customs agents were already aware that smugglers were thusly exploiting our feathered friends. (The BBC also says the payload was actually ketamine.)
Both reports say that pigeons have been used before to fly small quantities of cannabis and cocaine into prisons in Latin America—noting one such interception in Costa Rica in 2015 and another in Colombia in 2011. Presumably, in all such instances, the pigeon that was caught represented several that made it through.
