There have been mysterious sprouts growing in the containers on my balcony garden for months now.
At first I thought they were old seeds that I had planted and never sprouted, but then I planted in new containers using new soil and the sprouts appeared again.
Some of the sprouts have finally started to mature to the point where they have full leaves. They are dark green in color and hearty like malabar spinach.
I cannot identify what they could possibly be. Are they a weed? Edible? Ornamental? I’ve pretty much thinned them out in most of the containers, but still have some stragglers.
As long as they are an edible, I’m cool. Does anyone have any ideas as to what they could be or how I would go about identifying them?
