Free tomatoes

In our household we throw all our green waste into the compost bin we have at the back of the gardens and that includes the leftover vegetable cuttings and what leftovers from the tomatoes Terese uses for her pasta sauce.

So when the compost is ready I'd spread them all over the garden beds like mulches and that's when the tomato seeds started to germinate and we have lots of tomato plants growing wild all over the place. I let them be and pretty soon they bear fruits and today 2 of them were ripe for the picking. Free tomatoes from the garden but they're not very big or tasty because I don't feed them with fertilizer.

Darn! We do the same, but no tomato plants ... or potatoes for that matter. Or even spaghetti plants.
