Four out of five collards align

Four collard plants line up to volunteer

I don’t plant anything in rows. I like squares and clusters. Where I don’t plant, I like letting new plants spring where they think they will do best; and where I do I like to make it look as if the plants put themselves there. So what am I to think when I let collards volunteer whereever they like, and they turn out all in a line?

Check it out: a little one in the foreground, a big one, another big one by the mulberry tree, and—you may have to take my word for it—another little one beyond the mulberry tree. Weird.

Nice big collard on its own

At least collard #5 is doing the free spirit thing.
