Cinnamon BasilThis cinnamon basil is born in a pot with some strawberries, maybe from a seed dropped last year. It's bigger than the ones sown indoor... nature always knows what to do!

Green purslaneGreen purslane is a spontaneus herb that grows in my pots during summer, and can be added to salads, sauces, sandwiches, but it can also be pickled.

FlaxThis flax plant can be born from a fallen seed, but I growed flax two years ago... and in another balcony. I let it grow and now it's blooming.
