A strange sight on my patio.

This morning I noticed some basil plants growing among the weeds across the pavement on my patio.

Where did these plants come from? From the balcony above where I have other basil plants growing in flowerpots. They had flowered and dropped their seeds onto the patio below.

I really found this observation interesting. There’s just enough dirt on the pavement for the seeds to sprout and they certainly get plenty of leftover water that flows from the balcony when I water my plants each morning.

Now I’m left wondering what to do with these extra plants. I’ll likely get some more flowerpots or maybe I’ll just plant them in the ground out of the way so I can clear off the pavement of all the weeds growing there. Either way I won’t be running out of fresh basil anytime soon.
