Q.new house with a vegetable garden

Zone Central Coast NSW | LuLu added on September 29, 2011 | Answered

I have just bought a new house with a vegetable garden. There are certain vegetables and herbs that just pop up and I am unsure what they are. The latest started with very large, soft leaves and now I can see a type of flower in the middle which looks very much like Broccoli, but the leaves seem to be too big; perhaps, it’s cauliflower?

It may be an artichoke. Are the leaves saw toothed (pointy edges)? Artichokes do grow back year after year and can get quite large.
