Whilst working today in the garden I found at least 40 small tomato plants nestled away in a patch I'd dug over a few weeks ago. They must have self seeded from last years crop and are doing quite well despite not getting any attention at all.
Now this started me off thinking that possibly nature was trying to tell me something - call me mad if you like but to me it's obvious that the conditions must have been right at some point for the seeds to germinate and grow into healthy seedlings without any help. The same goes for the mystery squash/courgette/pumpkin plants found in the muck heap yesterday. Do any of us try to work out what your garden would say if it could talk? Am I messing with nature by planting things that wouldn't normally be found growing here?
It's a big question and rather deep for this time of night after I've been working all day. What do you think? Have I had a little too much sunshine or do I possibly have a valid point?
I'll let you make your own mind up but feel free to leave comments on the state of my mental health ;)
