I sat through the whole thing as well. My lament impression is that it was a good argument in favor of 2A. And indeed the state council came off as a total #$@#$%&. I wish I could have heard the judge's discussion afterwards.
I also start some seeds indoors to get a jump on the season. Just under a small T5 light and in window sills. I've thought about getting one of those small grow tents but can just imagine my daughter telling her teachers that "daddy grows veggies in a tent in our basement"
