After taking in the biggest pumpkin the other day, I decided its little cousin needed to be in as well.
I’ve left that in the ground for now – I admire its spirit but I doubt very much that the flowers are going to turn into pumpkins this late in the day. (That said, the courgette plant has just had a growth spurt and there are several more fruit on the way there.) Still, I am ever curious.
Anyway, once I had cleared the ground of pumpkin plants, I started to clear it of less intended guests…. Then I pulled something up that smelled quite positively of lemon.
I have a feeling it might be lemon balm, in which case it would be useful to keep for the planned herb garden. So, I’m sad it has been pulled up but glad my mysterious new garden acquisition has arrived.
