Self-sown Nasturtiums

Nasturtiums are supposed to self-seed, but I read they are a little finiky and won't always do it. I wasn't able to save any seeds last year, because it was hard to get them ripe enough and I just didn't have the motivation to tie baggies on them or anything. So I wasn't sure what I'd get this year and bought seeds anyway.

Now I'm happy to report at least a couple did self-sow. The funny thing is, 3 out of the 4 or 5 of the plants grew inside the holes of the concrete blocks, not in the bed!

That's ok though, I left them there anyway and will just train them over onto the fence. I'm hoping maybe a few more will pop up when the weather gets warmer, guess we'll see.

It seems funny to me to see you planyt in the blocks, I thought I was the only one that did that. I planted thyme and oregano in them so they would come back every year. And now they just trllis down the front and you don't see the stone.
