Sorry about the quality of the pics. The last one includes a standard sized ball point pen to help give an idea of size. I'm wildly guessing it could be some sort of Gibbaeum or a relative, but .......
Thank you, Mick! My first guess had been Crassula, but the top clump made me wonder if it weren't a Gibbaeum grown in insufficient light. The fact that I put it in direct sun & it didn't burn should have told me something, though. Anyway, this web pic sure does look like what I have: C. arta ~
OK, everyone, I'm hoping some smartypants can help me. I started a lot of seeds this year and, as usual, some didn't come up. So I dumped the soil from all the duds into a large pot, and then this came up. I have no idea what it is. Nothing else like it came up and of course, I didn't write down everything I planted this year like I should have. Any clues? It's probably a flower, certainly not a vegetable. Help?
No, most of my seeds are ones I've picked up from friends or on the street myself. The UBC botanical forums mentioned it might be a capiscum. If so, it's a miracle because I used sterile soil and I never planted any peppers! Thanks, Cheery!
I came across this rampant and very pretty vine on a residential fence in a town north of the city. It's obviously a legume, but what? You can see its pods in the second picture. Some of them had gotten quite large, but were totally green inside, not showing the least bit of embryonic bean or pea.
