Lucky you guys.  We have volunteers also. I'll send you a picture some time (Sandersen will)...  Tasteless, huge hummers that some locals like.  Used to have some Kombocha volunteers which are more tasty but no longer.  Gotta get more of the right kind.

our ill kept pile of stuff we refer to as compost is a valuable yard corner we never stir it or work it put big branches and stuff on one side where they dry and are stripped of leaves and burned in or fire pit.  leaves and every thing else goes on top on the other side and it never gets turned over.  from the bottom we get garden soil, worms, and the occasional volunteer.

Don't you just love when your plans get squashed in such a good way?!  I always have some sort of volunteer and I LOVE them!  I am slowly getting my raised brick bed that the neighborhood alley cat turned into his litterbox changed into a volunteer Sunflower Forest.  My volunteer cilantro has now started invading my grass which makes it smell absolutely HEAVENLY when I mow.  I actually planted butternut squash about 3 weeks ago and they are just getting true leaves right now.  I hope in a month or so they will be spilling out of the box like your mystery plant did.

That's adorable, Cappy! I'm trying to grow butternut for the 3rd time. I'm beginning to wonder if the more you coddle them the slower they grow.

Good heavens, Cappy!  Is that a banana tree behind you?

You look like you're about to be swallowed up by your garden!  (Kinda like kudzu here...)

LOL!  sounds good to me!

We have a pecan tree in the back yard. 

But we get very few nuts.  The chipmunks (and now the squirrels) get to them before I do...  Sad

Yes, it is!

Ya know, Cappy, there is this instrument called a "nut picker" that will allow you to pick up the nuts without crawling on the ground...  You can get them at Lowe's, HD, etc. 

(For those shooters/hunters in the group, it's also great for picking up shot cartridges.)

But probly the dogs wouldn't have as much fun with you if you did it that way...

LoL down here in pecan country thise nut picker things are a sign of old age.  pecan pickers go from duck walking and bending over when young to crawling around when older.  We are trying hard to avoid the walking cane/nut picker things for a few more years.  Also the doggy wrestling and now kitty pawing added to the mix is lots of fun.

LOL! Thanks a LOT, Cappy... This was only the 26th anniversary of my 26th birthday this year.

It's just easier on my back and a whole lot faster for me.

But I must confess that if I had critters, I'd think twice... I always enjoyed wresting w/ my 4-legged boys.

Well marie I have a few "anniversaries" of that day on ya.  I still though older and fatter refuse to get a walking stick that picks pecans Razz   Clinging to my contrary ways I must admit though, it's getting harder and harder to get up from crawling around when ya done and I  now hafta rely on the buckets assistance to do so.  I am sure the pecan picking stick aint far off.
