Hubs is thrilled we have evidence its from My side of the family.
In the front garden I've got self-seeded plants coming up all over the place. Which I love.

Because we hover in between sub-tropical and temperate here, I usually get my tomato seeds going around the end of July.
But, in a moment of dizzying realisation, I wondered WHAT IF I planted out the self-seeded tomatoes, and had a go at getting them through the winter - if they survive, we might get more tomatoes early on, especially if we lose them all to mid-summer wilt like we did last year.
I was so thrilled by this idea I woke hubs up to tell him.
He was not quite as impressed.
So, to start with, I've moved the self-seeders from the front garden and put them temporarily in one of the raised vege beds (to see who survives, and to give me time to clear the current occupants out of the Tomato beds).

Its exciting times here at Chez Nicholas, exciting times indeed.
