Plants in the Back Yard



It's amazing the things you find when you don't mow! We think these tall plants might be sunflowers planted by our birds.
Eli says this is Sorrel and you can eat the leaves and the "fruit". We have tons of it in the back yard so if you want to come over we can have a salad.



He made me eat one and they were pretty good! They are kind of tart and sweet at the same time.


We're not really sure what this is but it's pretty~ It has some sort of vine growing through it.
Oh, yeah. And we grow little boys in the back yard too! They need lots of milk and animal crackers to survive in case you want to grow your own.

I think the little boy is the nicest thing you're growing! :) I've always loved sorrel and would love to come for a salad....

If the neighbors complain about your not mowing, just explain that it's an experimental herb garden! (We have no neighbors to cmplain here...but we have lots of poisonous snakes, so we mow in order to see them if they are there!!)
