Veggie Green Thumb

 My wife has a prodigious  green thumb this year.  She planted a bunch of red seed potatoes in four 20 gallon pots.  This year she used the compost we created in the past year mixed with some store bought garden soil to fill the pots.  She left two other 20 gallon pots with the compost soil mixture for later planting.  Surprise - a couple of volunteer tomato plants started to grow in those pots.  As you can see in the second pictures, they are growing like gang busters.  Apparently some tomato seeds in the compost decided to sprout.  We are anxious to see is they produce a bunch of good tomatoes.
