Growing local

It grew out of the little air holes in the side of a compost bin, so I left it there for a joke. I noticed it is now fruiting.

I think I only have one (the tiny one under the big one in this photo!  But, I'm quite confident there will be more pop up around the place.

Hi Andrew, I have a neighbour who would dearly love a gooseberry plant if you have extra please.

Good Morning Dianne - Raining here too, not a lot but should be enough to give the garden a good drink.  Have a good day

Andy, if you have any littlies that you don't want, would love to adopt and try growing them again

I love it, don't you just love these little visitors we get on occasions. They can be real surprises and the best of all in giving, it is like a Thank You for letting them get on with it...

Would you mind please keeping a couple of the extras for me that come up, I might try growing them.

They seem to love compost.  Damn things come up all over the place.
