See… I told you I could not be trusted with this series!
Here’s the thing. I’m not exactly known for my green thumb. Likely because I don’t have one. In fact, one of the most prolific plants in our garden in the last three years was one I didn’t plant at all!
Not intentionally, anyway.
We didn’t even know what this was when it sprouted out of our mulch pit (compost), but it looked like fun so we let it grow. And grow. And grow.
A few months and many exciting discoveries later, we supplied pumpkins for table decorations at our Thanksgiving feast!
I’d love to hear from the “real” gardening experts, since that so very clearly isn’t me: Is your garden as talented as mine? Do plants just magically appear? My neighbors call them “volunteer” plants. I’m just thrilled that they volunteer in my garden since I have a bit of difficulty growing things intentionally.
