I am excited and wanted to share. I was picking spinach and found 4 baby tomato plants growing. This is great news for me since I am hoping they are all Yellow Pear tomatoes (that is what was planted there last year). I was going to do without since all mine died. ALL of them (and only the yellow pears, all the rest of the plants grew just fine).

PNW weather will be above 60 for the next week or so enjoy your garden!

Volunteers are just the greatest...
I have always found that my volunteers caught up to my indoor grown seedlings, and passed them.

Cool

Love volunteer 'maters! Saved my last year, as I killed all my seedlings trying to harden them off. Almost my entire crop of tomatoes last year was from volunteers - and I made my best sauce ever!

we found a volunteer tomato growing in our dogs kennel compost pile Shocked 

not sure how its going to do in there....but we are leaving it to see if the dogs leave it alone and it continues to grow....

their compost pile is made up of the grass we mow in their kennel and tomato plants that we pull and don't want in our main compost bins....basically anything that takes to long to break down ( like thick sticks, weeds or sick looking plants gets tossed into that pile....the dogs love it and one of our dogs sleeps on top of it rofl it tends to look like Big Birds Nest....ha ha ha

happy gardening

I just found one too! It was in the garden box with our homemade compost (we didn't have enough for all 4), so the seeds weren't toasted like the store-bought ones are. It was where my spinach used to be (just like you! Cool ). Since it's stalk is super-long, I'm going to replant it, and see how it does.

I have NO idea what varietal it is!
