wild shiso and pumpkins

A friend in the US was asking if we had shiso in our garden. Do we ever have shiso! Everywhere and anywhere. Last year we had a few wild shiso plants and at the end of the season my husband gave them a good shake around the garden. Now we have hundreds of baby shiso. By the trees....
By the carrot patch...
By (and under) the old kitty litter container we use to mix soil .
Growing out of rocks and sand next to the dog's summer shelter.
Speaking of plants gone wild. Last year we tossed the rotten pumpkins down below, and this year we used that soil for our vegetable beds. Pumpkins sprouting everywhere!
