I thought I’d show you some of the “wild things” that popped up in the garden this year!
Above you see chives. I planted the seeds early in the spring last year…not having a clue what would happen to them. Some of them sprouted but didn’t get too far. I just left the pot alone over the winter…and up sprouted a bunch of chives!
I’m looking forward to enjoying the baked potatoes with “wild” chives!
There are a number of random spots with “wild” cilantro. The leaves aren’t very full, but it reeks of cilantro. There is no question that it’s cilantro. I’m just letting it grow in and we’ll see what happens!
And there’s a lone green bean plant that has sprouted among the squash and zucchinis in the “side patch.” I’m going to let it grow up and lead it towards the wire fence that keeps the rabbits, squirrels (and 18 month olds) out of the garden. I’m hoping that it will run all the way around and the kids can pick green beans all summer long!
