I have squatters in my garden beds; both of them. Different plants in each but nevertheless, squatters!
Bed 1 (the Kale and garlic bed) has been invaded by Couch grass. Easy to identify and bloody difficult to eradicate.
Bed 2 however has a couple of weird plants with 'nightshade' looking foliage. It was with confusion that looked this morning and saw a cape gooseberry hanging off of a very unlike capegooseberry plant. WTF? Have my plants mutated or what? Grabbed a leaf from a known CG in my garden and a leaf from plant 'X' and headed inside for some serious google identification.
'Cape Gooseberry varieties' hmmmmm results showed that they are all bog standard looking and not the leaf I had on the table. The next entry brought up a page with the unknown entry on the page of 'tomatillo'. Bingo! I have a tomatillo!
Now the question is, How did it get into my garden bed and where did it come from?
Oh and a Happy New Year to you all :)
