Fruits and Vegetables, at Random

My Random Tomato PlantI’ve been maintaining a modest container-based fruit and vegetable garden for the past few years. I plant mostly from seed. The past few seasons, it has astonished me that when I water and feeding regularly, I may get a moderate-sized crop. However, some of the fruit and vegetable seeds that I thought were non-productive in the pots actually, with the help of the wind, were carried off and landed outside of my pots, only to produce vigorously, without my intervention. The lettuces have done this the most, and in this photo, is a random tomato plant (I grew different varieties, I’m not sure which one this is!). HOW TO: In an attempt to propagate cheaply, I’ve broken off a secondary stem from this same plant and planted it into a pot with moist soil, and it’s rooted!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE: The non-fruit parts of tomato plants are poisonous if ingested. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
