LOL!! This exact same thing happened in 1976 in Columbus with my neighbor. My visiting uncle recognized the plant on the neighbors back porch only this was about ornamental orange tree size. The gals teen-age sons had given her four pots and told her they were tomato plants. She watered, weeded, and aerated those things every day. She was last seen chasing the boys around the house with a broom after Uncle Okey ratted them out!
I still have the vivid mental image of the 6 o'clock news in the Nashville area about 24 years ago. This cop was destroying what he thought was a pot patch...and this 80 year old woman was chasing him with a broom for destroying her okra patch!
Yea it been out there for about 2 weeks now been watching them grow from just little seeds.
Shit 2 years ago went two some family for after a death to have the meal and I was setting there with my Mom and she said boy that is some nice plant and that she would like to have one.I had not noticed it so I looked at what she was talking about. I told her mom I think we should go. she was putting up a fight and I told her lets just go. we got back to the car and she said what the hell is the matter with you. I told her that it was not just plants. they had about 40 of them growing all over the place. when I told her what it has she almost shit her pants.
