Ok - not really aliens, but I was surprised to find these shooting up alongside a small pepper plant. I think they're sweetpeas but suppose they could possibly be edible peas - they're really still too small to tell.
The pepper has recently been potted up and brought inside in the hope of keeping it alive over winter on the window sill. I don't know where the pea seed has come from - it certainly isn't deliberately set but may have been drying for next year's seed in the kitchen, though even then, how it got in the plant pot is a mystery.
I'll pot them up separately soon and see how they grow.


  1. you'ved had a few surprise plants this year I think if I remember correctly, didn't you plant seed packs with no names or something like that for a surprise, I think its a bit exciting,, not knowing, trying to figure it out, a bit of a challenge.I would enjoy this but as you can see it doesn't take much to amuse me, lol.I would love to have your garden and the adventures along with it.Have a great weekend,

  2. Hhhmm, I can't remember what grew from that unmarked packet.I've had a lot of verbena spring up in unexpected places so I wonder if that was it.
