Every year I sow seeds of several plants I’ve only read about and never before seen. Medicinal herbs in particular.
Sometimes this leads me to err on the side of caution when an unfamiliar plant begins to grow in the general vicinity of those new plantings. I have a sneaking suspicion it is likely a “weed” but I let it get bigger and bigger, thinking it will tell me whether or not it is “something.”
Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t. Often I am left watching it grow, occasionally fruitlessly taking a switch of it inside to try and identify it using computer weed identification sites, but my lack of knowledge of botanical terminology hampers my progress.
