There are a few potatoes coming up too. I've also got lettuce, basil, peas, onions, cabbage, an broccoli.
One of the things about lasagna gardening is the surprise of a volunteer plant every now and then. They spring up out of the heavily composted growing medium and leave you thinking, "Hey! Who put that there?!?". For example:
Now, I am pretty bad about letting bagged potatoes sprout. Last fall I sent my oldest son out with a load of potato peels to dump. He went to the very edge of my largest bed (as close as possible to the house) and dumped them. Then I went back through and dumped about two feet of pecan leaves on top of them and thought no more about it... Until last week! As you can see, I now have big and healthy potato plants growing from these discarded peels. Last year I had cantaloupe and cherry tomatoes grow this way as well! Yipee!
I love surprises like this!
