    Primal Fuel
    most of it is a crab-grass like plant that grows seed pods which stick to everything. not sure if it's edible, but i already have plenty of salad greens (you can't tell from the photo, but those are 14 ft. rows). among the marigolds is some catnip and volunteer coriander, which i've allowed to grow. the marigolds will self-seed, and i'm assuming the coriander and catnip will as well. technically you could call both of those weeds. i've also had three tomato volunteers this year. I'm currently eating some of my salad greens with bacon. i'm also having a fat day, which, i know, is insanely lame.

    I don't remember being in your garden... but OK.
    Sometimes I sleepwalk... you must have seen my bare footy prints.

    Which is my real, actual, name.
    Sorry was being vague and silly.

    Wouldn't it be awesome if you could have volunteer gardeners?

    that would be awesome! i'd gladly reward them with free hugs and produce. my kids occasionally help pull weeds, water, and turn the soil, but they're pretty unreliable.

    *sigh* The problem with all this nice rain we've been having is that my garden is also totally taken over by weeds. I'm sure it has nothing to do with my neglect of it recently or anything

    I would totally volunteer...
    150 degree nematode ridden sand is not place for a garden.
    Plus... I don't have enough in me to put in and maintain a whole thing.
    But I'd love to have some dirt between my toes and pull at some weeds/use a little long reach hand held hoe while sitting on a garden stool once or twice a week... commune with the birds and bugs a bit while being semi-productive.
    I may occasionally steal a ripe cherry tomato as payment.

    i'm not sure of the tomato plants that i've planted this year. some are the volunteers (hopefully cherry or grape) and the other 4 were random heirloom plants that i grabbed quickly before the store closed.
