Sometime in Oct when I was getting plants ready to move into the greenhouses I noticed this growing in a pot that had a dead Datura in it. I guess either the birds or squirrels planted the seeds for me. Here's how it looks today

My Texas wild cherry sprouted yards from the original plant and landed in my butterfly weed bed and started producing. I've collected over a dozen tomatoes thus far and still have green ones on the vine.

Also found several seedlings across the yard; I'll dig them up and see if they continue to grow in pots.

That's amazing! I've got one that is now almost ripe enough to pick and about six or so that are still green. I fed and watered it the other day and it's looking really good.

Here it is, the first ripe one. I guess my wife and I will have to draw straws to see who gets to eat it. The other photo is of a few more that hopefully will ripen soon. Thinking about starting some pretty soon in the greenhouse and just leave them in it to grow this year that way we'll get more tomatoes than the birds and squirrels.
