Is It a Weed?
Do you ever notice something growing in the garden and wonder what it is? Did I plant it or did it just come up on its own? This large, looming plant is growing in the backyard garden bed in SJC and it sure looks like a weed, but it also looks perfectly spaced like it was intentionally planted. It has been growing for months and I have been patiently waiting until it blooms to confirm that it is something I chose rather than a volunteer. I have a sneaking suspicion it is Queen Anne's Lace, which I know is a weed in some parts of the country, but doesn't grow wild here. I have planted it a number of times to use in floral arrangements, but it never seems to make it to bloom. Another week or so should tell the tale!
