Accidental vegetables

After I harvested the potatoes, we tilled up the patch and mixed in some lime for sweetness. While we were at it, we tilled up another troubled patch of grass and mixed in our first batch of compost. Would lime and compost yield the same results?

Grass is similarly sprouting in both the lime- and compost-treated areas. There is also, surprisingly, some additional species growth in the area with compost. Ah, vegetable seedlings to be exact.

Tomato jungle towers above grass understory.

Leaves of a big-fruiting plant -- melon? squash?

Ironicially, beets, which I wasn't able to grow successfully from seed this summer.

Plants do what plants do. We have decided to simply let this go — no mowing — until the first frost.
