The Grow Lab Supply Store is Open for Business

GYOstuff has opened a store at 2400 Massachusetts Avenue in North Cambridge specializing in hydroponics, organics, and indoor gardens under the trademark Grow Your Own®.

And what can you grow with hydroponics? Tomatoes to be sure. Sweet peppers, hot chilies, lettuce, spinach, squash, eggplant, cucumbers, broccoli, beans, snow peas, strawberries, herbs and flowers of all types. And then there is this plant, which has leaves that look very much like marijuana but probably isn't:

It's a Cambridge Local First business. The hours are convenient if you don't get up too early or have to work too late. You can also come in on the weekend.

Sunday-Wednesday 10AM – 6PM EST
Thursday-Saturday 10AM – 7PM EST

This of course is what comes of decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana in Massachusetts. You're legal if you're caught with less than an ounce of pot. There is still a potential civil fine of $100 but no criminal charges. And where do you get your less than one ounce of pot?

Maybe it's not a bad thing. You can't buy good tomatoes. If you want the really delicious heirloom tomato varieties that stay ripe for just a day or two, you need to grow your own.
