A  difficulty with sowing  seeds in wild or semi-wild corners

is my ignorance in plant identification.

For instance, there are I think various kinds of buttercup that are poisonous but which look quite like land cress,

so while the land cress seeds itself all over the place including in the patches I leave wild or semi-wild,

I don't dare eat the leaves except

where I know I sowed the land cress.

And that's where labels come in -

I almost never remember to label anything,

and only know I sowed it if it comes up as a row

instead of a patch!

So when sowing in or picking food from my wild patches,

I generally stick to flowers -

I know which ones I can eat,

and they are all garden friends :-)
