My vegetable plants? or weeds?

Postby heli » Sat Jan 25, 2014 9:19 am

I see these plants in my vegetable bed. I wonder if they are my vegetables or weeds?

I think I planted zucchini, broad bean, tomato, brocolli. Are these plants one of these?

Broad Bean Plant http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/pro ... px?pid=617

A Google Image search for the others will give you an idea what you should see.

I think the second plant is a tomato or potato, the other 2 are weeds.

You are right. I removed all three plants and the second plant is indeed a potato, and I then put it back.
