Every once in a while I like to let one or two of my large containers sit out a season. I think the rest does them some good. Of course, Mother Nature never lets anything truly rest, does she? Everything is always in flux and life is always trying to break through at some level. So I shouldn't be surprised to find something growing in one of my large containers that remained unused this year.
But what was surprising is that a wonderberry plant sprouted and is now producing fruit. I grew Burbank wonderberries in that container about two years ago! I can't quite figure out why no wonderberry plants sprung up last year, but are appearing now. It's downright puzzling. But as mysteries go, this one is quite easy to live with.
