I hate this temperature jump. I can't adjust to it, but my seedlings love it. Everyday I take my pepper seedlings for sunbathing and they seem to like it very much.
This heat dried our steep path to my future herb bed and I was shoked when I went to check it out.
Last spring I planted mint, spinach tree and lovage.
Mint and spinach tree are still underground and haven't started growing back but instead of lovage I found this.
I was really surprised since I know Lovage looks a lot like celery and this little shrub looks nothing like it. I've spent minutes trying to figure out what happened, but I just couldn't. I planted seedling that I got from lovage seeds, with leaves that looked like celery, smelled like celery and even had little stick with lovage written on it.
Then how did I get a plant that doesn't look, smell or have leaves like Lovage.
After meditating, consulting books and google I figured that this is Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium). Yes I did sow it last spring, but I planted it on other side of the garden and not in my herb garden.
So how did it get there? I have no idea.
And if this is Feverfew and not Lovage, then where is my lovage plant? I searched my whole garden and didn't find anything.
I sowed Lovage again to see if this one will also disappear.
I guess I have little garden dwarfs that rearrange my plants. It's the only reasonable answer to this mystery.
