Where did the fennel come from?

About a week ago, I cut down the fennel (herb) after collecting the seeds for tea. I therefore thought that was the end of that. 

But this evening, whilst gathering salad leaves I noticed a fennel plant amongst the cabbages and chard. So, once again I am in awe of nature.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    No seriously though Fennel can be quite rampant at times. In one of the parks we dealt with at the council you would find it EVERYWHERE mid summer. *rolls eyes*
