They're coming up beside decorative plants in large pots.
Must have been seeds in the dirt I used to fill pots.
They seem very healthy -- almost more so than the ones
I painstakaking planted and labeled and transplanted and...
Be interesting to see what materializes down the line!

I noticed the same thing with my volunteers!
One plant I let go, has nearly caught up with the ones I started in
March and, like you said, seems to be healthier. Much better color.
Next year I am rethinking my plans.
I always grow a lot of the "salad" tomatoes and every year I get a good
number of volunteer plants from last year's garden. Some of them I
transplant and some of them I give to the neighbors. The only down side
is that I never know exactly what they will be but neither I or the
neighbors care because ANY home grown tomato tastes better than the ones
the supermarkets sell.
I pulled most of my vounteer tomatoes this year. I did save some peppers. I
had a little pear at the end of last season that produced almost all winter
until the frost got it.Please post back on what they are.

Before the chickens joined our yard, I had volunteers coming up all
spring. As they got to a good size, I gave them away, by the dozens. My
lot is 135 long and I planted them outside the fence along that strip for
all the neighbors to enjoy also. Each of the children in the neighborhood
had their own plant (and labeled with their name) with lots that were
"public" plants as well.
When I gave them to people, I told them they were mystery tomato plants
but were heirlooms, guaranteed to be delicious. It was fun to see what
they got since I had things like Black, Pineapple, Sun Gold, Black Plum,
Green Stripey - you get the idea.<g>
It's really quite cool to do that. Those days are gone for now since the
chickens get the garden at the end of the season; they pretty much clean
up any and all seeds.
Yep. No pot but a gravel driveway. One leaf lettuce plant decided to
germinate, take root, and continue year after year on the edge of the
driveway. Ain't supposed to happen, maybe one season, but it keeps coming
back. Even last year's drought didn't kill it. 2nd year now.
