Its been a few weeks since I last posted. With this recent Summer-like weather, Bozeman has gotten a month's jump start on the gardening season and I've been busy with my three gardens as well as playing outside in the sunshine. I also have a new part-time job as an independent gardener. I have a long-term position working 10-20 hours a week for wealthy dude as one of his personal gardeners. I'm given a list of chores to do and I work all by myself. I can make up my own schedule. It seems like a pretty sweet gig so far, but it is hard work as I've been working 6 hours at a time in the guy's 95 degree F greenhouse. I have to pace myself and drink a lot of water. I've also picked up two temporary gigs where I help with yard clean-up and basic landscaping chores. The woman that I am sharing the 250 sqft garden with has hired me to tidy up her elaborate perennial flower beds. She has been a good connection because not only am I sharing the garden with her and doing paid yard work, she has also hired me for three weeks of cat sitting.
Anyway, I was working in her flower beds for a couple of hours on Thursday when I noticed the Mystery Plant. Lots of them, in fact. If you don't remember, I blogged a while back about unknown plants growing in my Movable Garden that survived the winter. I didn't plant them there and I wasn't sure if they were a weed or some other type of plant that was present in one of my packets of vegetable seeds.
