I have some volunteer tomato plants growing in awkward spots in my garden. I don’t have the heart to yank them out, even though one of them is probably the offspring of a hybird variety, and thus won’t produce good fruit (I assume).
I had a carrot sprout up very early in the spring; evidently one of my carrots last year went to seed. I probably harvested the earliest carrot in all of the Shenandoah Valley. Some sunflowers volunteered themselves as well–apparently the birds missed a few seeds last year.
Meanwhile, my compost heap has donated several cucumber plants to the cause…
How about you? What plants have volunteered in your garden?
