Tomatillos naturalize after one year in a garden. A plant sprawls, fruit drops, rots and deposits seeds. Over the course of the season the seeds, and whole tomatillos, get mixed into the loam. Beginning in early Spring continuing through Summer to early Fall, volunteer tomatillo seedlings need to be weeded out, else they take over the garden. A prize is a small mound of seedlings marking the spot where a tomatillo buried whole has sprung back to life. The tough seedlings take well to being dug up and transplanted to macetas. When the garden’s established, I plant tomatillos where they’ll sprawl to provide shade mulch and picking excursions.
