What are they?


Here is a pretty little plant that started out teensy weensy, growing next to a carrot. I moved it to another bed and it thrived. It has pretty little white flowers on the top.

I call it my 'Fairy Plant'. What is it?

I will be very happy to find out hat is growing in my garden. Also, I didn't plant any of these. But I suspect the top 2 to be buckwheat, as we have lots of spilled chook seed around sometimes. :D

@007Sean is bearded wheat otherwise known as emmer wheat?
Yes and no, the wheat in your pic has most likely been domesticated. Emmer wheat has not been domesticated. Emmer wheat would shed it's seeds, the domesticated variety's have been engineered not to shed it's seed except via mechanical/hand manipulation.
