    It appears to be a misprint. The article states he has 500 plants, not 5,000. Being it was that long ago, it was probably 500, not 5,000.

    Phil, have you checked out the address? It's not too far from you. I may do a drive by at lunch for the heck of it.

    A quick check using Google Earth shows that this entire area has seen better days; not much of anything green at the address or in the immediate neighborhood.
