I love it when stuff just happens, too! All my dill and parsley and chamomile plants are hanging on by a thread. Failure to thrive. In the same bed I bury the kitchen scraps and potatoes and garlic that I buried are growing like crazy.
My goal? To create a wildlife habitat on our surburban (almost rural) property using mostly California native plants and inspire others to do the same.
Also to learn how to grow some edibles - more than the herbs I have grown before.
I haven't planted current tomatoes, parsnips, sprouting broccoli, cucuzzi gourds, or Seminole squash for several (2 to 6) years. Just let the seedlings grow where they come up, transplant to a more suitable location, or pull as weeds if there is a surplus of seedlings.

I am currently dehydrating calendula flowers from a patch that reseeded extremely well. Medicinal flowers at zero cost to myself other than the $2 packet of seeds last year. I am moving more and more towards these types of plants being the focus of my garden.
Don't let perfect be the enemy of good.
