I do not plant vegetables in my garden. We have a tiny city garden and although it is sunnier than any garden I have had before, is still in the shade of the house for much of the afternoon. There is an enormous vegetable garden at my in-laws so I put in allot of time there and reap the rewards. I do, however, make compost so last year I noticed a number of what I was pretty sure were pumpkins coming up in my flower beds. I was continually plucking them out. I was impressed by their stubbornness and since I was pretty sure they were children of my recently deceased father-in-law's pumpkins, I let one live. It romped through my beds, looping across the lawn, through the fence into the neighbours and back again. It had big beautiful orangie flowers and was a welcome sight in a waining late summer garden. It even produced two pumpkins: one in my neighbours yard which she really appreciated and one in ours. So this year same thing started to happen so I let a couple of them live. WELL, I've got two butternut squash vines, a watermelon vine and a renegade tomato plant! I can't wait to see what comes up next year.
