Momma's Growin Illegal Plants in her Backyard WHAT?!

I moved into my house two months ago.... I've had this squash-like plant/bush growing that I have had no idea what it was. I even went as far as uploading this picture to Facebook, tagging my grandma (yes, my grandparents are on Facebook!), so maybe she could identify it. We didn't know what it was...... Until......I saw some kids OVERDOSED from it on the news! Apparently, it is a "Jimson Weed" plant. Which was made illegal to grow since 2004........Whoopsy. Anyways, I called the police , they chopped it down and took it with them. I'm so glad it's been too hot to go outside with the kids and they haven't touched it!

The police officer said, "This is a good sized plant in great condition".......I had to laugh and say, "yeah, I've been keeping it watered!"

Lotsa work.

This is my pretty pond. I love watching my koi children! it is another story. Apparently algea likes to grow when it's hot. AND, since it has been record breaking month of heat this July....I've been busy. We have went through a pump already, and EVERY night I have to scoop off the algea blanket that forms every day. I obviously had/have no idea what I was getting into when I bought a house with this.  I keep waiting for it to be too hot and the fish to die (so I can shock it and put more work into it next spring........bad Mom, bad Mom), but instead they are multiplying like rabbits!

How pretty are these?!?
