Volunteer Tomato Plants

I had a nice surprise when weeding my garden this week.  Two volunteer tomato plants had popped up and in places where they wouldn’t bother anything.  How considerate of them!  It’s very difficult for me to pull a volunteer plant or even to thin rows of carrots or beans.  When a plant is trying his best to thrive and be a productive member of the garden society, it seems heartless to yank him. But for the sake of the common good of the carrots…

Anyway, here is a picture of one of the volunteers.  They are very small, but seem to be doing very well nestled in straw mulch and protected with a cage.  It will be fun to see what variety they are.
