POT GARDEN, by Sandor Slomovits
Law went into effect, weed gardens have been springing up like...well,
weeds. Supporting evidence is a colorful, hand-lettered sign by a small garden on the Old West Side, which boldly advertises, "[name withheld to protect the innocent]'s pot garden."
Further investigation unearthed the fact that the "pot" on the sign refers to the containers in the garden and not their contents. And that the "innocent" is a ten-year-old, who is indeed innocent of the double meaning of her sign. She is in fact doubly innocent. Her pots contain eggplants, hot peppers and leeks.
