Sometimes an orchard is all laid out in neat rows, and then “volunteers” pop up in unexpected places. (For those not familiar with the gardening use of that term, a volunteer is a plant that grows where the gardener did not intend. It is a nicer term than “weed” and does not connote anything undesirable.) This happens in the virtual orchard from time to time.
Case in point: There is a fun and interesting discussion of election days and early voting sprouting and even thriving productively over in the row originally planned for Australian Senate reform. Many readers might find it interesting, so I am calling it out with this link to where it starts. By this point, if you have something to contribute, you might as well add it there, and so I will not have comments open on this guide to unexpected virtual-orchard plantings.
