in the gardening sense is a plant which grows of its own accord. Stray seeds overwinter in the soil (or a crack in the patio!) and without any help from us it wants to grow. This tomato is from a dropped tomato last year which fell between the cracks, quite literally!
is well known as one of the seeds which is most difficult to germinate - which makes is presence between the cracks in the shady corner of my patio more fascinating.
But this week I noticed some kind of squash or pumpkin
growing on the patio! It won't come to anything but it just seems to have found a little moisture in the moss and dog hair!
or how about this potato
growing out of the kitchen compost bin?
There's even a tomato growing in my tomato
patch! Just amazing when you consider these seeds have been overwintered in the soil during Winter and just find their own way in life.
