We did put up a bird feeder, but I don’t think there are any chili seeds in bird feed! We got some sunflowers from it though.
Maybe a neighbor was growing them. Bird poop is a great way to distribute seeds far away from the mother plant.

My best sunflower year ever was due to the birds ( and squirrels) being sloppy eaters ( and poor bird feeder placement on my part)

So true. Usually if you end up with some odd plant in your yard that you've never seen before, it's due to the birds or even the squirrels.

I remember reading an article years ago about how some family made a huge hoopla about an "alien plant" suddenly showing up in their yard one spring and they couldn't figure out the mystery of where it came from and made up all kinds of theories (you can just imagine). I was chuckling as I read it, thinking it was so easy to figure out, if they'd just think about it for a while
