My brother-in-law is always having interesting things happen to him. He's an earthy, low-impact type of fellow who hates spending money. The vegetable garden he was trying to grow on his porch wasn't doing so well, and he was almost thinking he was going to have to go out and buy some fertilizer. The next day, 12 police cars showed up at the garage next door and busted a major grow-op. They hauled off 300 plants. His wheeling-and-dealing roommate made a deal with the unfortunate landlord of the grow-op building to clean the place up for a tidy sum. Among the hyrdoponics and lighting systems was 15 bags of fertilizer. My brother-in-a-law got a free bag from his roomie, and his porchtop vegetable garden is doing much better.
