It could be a seed grown peppermint?  They are always pretty variable and often not worth keeping.

Weeds, Pests & Diseases / Newby - lawn weeds!!
« Last post by moldyform on October 17, 2017, 09:44:05 PM »
Hi, I've not long bought an acre with a lot of gardens and lawn. I've been slowly working out what all the plants are and more so what all the weeds are!!

I have recently dug up some patchy lawn ready to plant kykuyu seed and there is a lot of this particular weed coming up.

Looking for an ID on this weed and best treatment on a kykuyu grass

so another quick update. most of my 22 F2 plants have commenced flowering, so far I have selfed 10 plants and the fruit appear to be holding  :42: I am getting a good mix of round and elongated fruit. My biggest challenge is keeping the dogs from knocking the vines around to much. I cant wait to see the mature fruit.

If the wood and buds look healthy then it’s probably just a little sluggish. I find newly planted deciduous trees often take longer to wake from winter dormancy in their first year. If by Xmas there’s no sign of life then it will probably never wake. You can check by using something sharp to gently scrape back a little bark towards the end of a branch. If you can see green this suggests it’s still alive.
Good luck with it.

Grew soybeans a few years back. Easy crop to grow I found though the green vegetable bug did seem rather fond of them. I picked the beans once the pods had filled and prepared them edamame style. They were delicious.
Not a new veg but I am trying a few new to me cultivars of orach this year. I’m especially looking forward to one called Magenta Magic.

Really wanted to try cape gooseberry but the seeds I got from eBay were duds. Trying crookneck squash this year, the plant didn't really work last year and the one squash I got tasted really bad.

So far the Mighty Red Improved and Sweet Bite seedlings I planted are growing well, and the Black Russian and Cherokee Purple seedlings are coming on strong. Also have a Black Cherry coming up now.

Trying spaghetti squash for the first time this year, and not a new vegetable but new variety: pickling cucumbers.
