Every year my garden surprises me with vegetables and herbs that I didn’t plant.  Dill and cilantro come up from the previous year’s seeds in some unexpected places.  Here and there tomato plants sprout up from last year’s seed.  Most of these I pull up, but one I left this year because I had room for it to grow.  It must have been from a Juliet seed, even though it has a little different shape.

Here’s a side by side comparison.  They are very close to the hybrid Juliets, and have an almost identical taste.  Saving their seeds might be worth a try for next year’s garden.

The other volunteer is a strange one indeed.  I’m not sure what kind of winter squash it came from.  It looks somewhat like an acorn squash, but bigger and without the ridges.

I transplanted it from the compost.  The other sprouts died out, but this one is proving to be very interesting.  Who knows what I’ll find when I cut it open?
