RADISHES JUST WENT TO POT

SHARE RADISHES JUST WENT TO POT

A Bingham County couple was surprised when what they thought were radish seeds planted in their garden sprouted into 150 marijuana plants.

Bingham County Sheriff Roy Nelson said the couple grew suspicious when the plants continued to grow but yielded no radishes. They turned the plants over to the sheriff's office when friends informed them it was marijuana."These are good people and they did the right thing," Nelson said.

The couple found the seeds in a house they had bought, the sheriff said. They described the small black seeds to a seed company employee who said they apparently were radishes.

When fully grown, the plants would have had a street value of about $2,000 each, Nelson said.
