Growing all on their own....

 In between all the rows of deliberately planted veg at the allotment there's always some that managed to grow all on their own....

we've found a clump of beetroot that have produced at least one reasonable sized root

 this unknown brassica - probably a cabbage

 half a dozen plant of American Land Cress

 Another brassica  and a 'wild' potato. On the bottom right are the radish seedlings that should be growing there

And there are unexpected flowers too - love in a mist has taken over this 'died-off' pea row

and in lots of places we've found verbena bonariensis which we've lifted and taken home


  1. Your allotment is doing so well. It's nice to get unexpected growth especially not weeds.

    1. It's all due to the wonderful autumn sunshine :)

  2. lovely to get these surprises, I do like a bit of serendipity ;) Great produce & flowers from a couple of posts back, too.
