I have taken a very laissez-faire approche to gardening last summer and most things looked like they didn't do anything. Apparently it is bearing fruits now, we got some "volunteer" kale that showed up!

We've had the most beautiful volunteer ruccola growing on top of our water heater - it's gone to seed now and I will just let it replant itself.
