Volunteer tomato plants from the compost bin

10 years ago

Just noticed two small tomato plants in a flower bed I created this year. I used my own compost in the bed and am pretty sure the plants are volunteers from some seeds that didn't come up originally when I started them indoors. (I composted it all.)

It's heartbreaking to think of pulling them up, especially since they are heirloom Costulto seeds from Monticello! (A gift from my sister at Christmas.) But I can't leave them there, and it is probably unrealistic to try to transplant them considering how late in the year it is, but part of me wants to try it. What do you guys think?

I'm in Zone 5A.
