a) I think that this is a houseplant of some sorts but have no clue as to what it is.

b) This vegetable was given to me. Does anyone know it?

I think you've all nailed these two.

I suspect that this daisy was left by a couple of neighbourly gardeners for me to plant.

I'd often wondered what this vegetable was that I saw growing in the Chinese ladies gardens. Then I was given a bag full of these today.

Many thanks for all of your great detective work.
John
