This has been the first time I've gardened for two consecutive years in the same place. After spending time carefully planning this year's garden, imagine my surprise to discover several "volunteer" plants from last year that were springing up all over the place - never mind my carefully constructed garden plan!
I think the volunteers are terrific and don't have the heart to kill them. The garden is playing an active role in designing itself this year! These pictures were taken around the 3rd week of June.

potatoes last year!)
looks like it's going to be a volunteer tomato patch.
