Talking about volunteer tomatoes, a friend of mine lived in an apartment. She kept a worm compost bin to amend the soil for her flowers. When she moved to a flat with a yard, she dumped the worm casings in the backyard. She planted a few vegis and some flowers, but no tomatoes. Later that summer, there were tomato plants everywhere. They didn't produce an abundance of tomatoes, but quite a few. They were blander and tougher than supermarket tomatoes, so her free tomatoes were best for compost. We figure that the worms didn't digest the tomato seeds in the bins and that's where the tomatoes came from.
