Bell Pepper in the Coleus Patch

Green pepper

Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

I'm still going through some old photos that were taken during the pre-digital era.  Last month I posted a photo of a volunteer coleus patch that began to grow on a walk in our garden without any help from us.  Well, what goes around comes around.  Here we have a volunteer bell pepper plant that decided to grow in a cultivated coleus patch!

The coleus bed had been mulched with compost, and we believe that some stray pepper seeds were in the mixture.  When the little pepper plant first sprang up, we recognized what it was, so we left it to grow.  As you can see, that was a good idea.   It gave us a few fresh peppers for our salads.

Wonderful photo. It's good to have vegetables in your garden. Food from mother nature.

This pepper plant really was a nice surprise, and we did enjoy the peppers it bore.
