planting outside the lines

Truth be told, I've been a little uncomfortable with the vegetables coming up any which way, without clear row markers to tell me where to weed and where to hoe.  Then tonight we explore the garden together at sunset  and uncover the unexpected, like sunflowers with the garlic and chard with the peas.  There's a strange beauty that comes with weeds and crooked patterns.  So much for rows!
