Volunteer tomato plant outsmarts season. Gardener begins to take phenology more seriously than phrenology

The compost bin has birthed three seperate tomato plants, four potato plants and a mouse den.  I have no idea what has happened to the potatoes, or the fat mice that ate my seed supply last week, but I do know that the three tomatoes are enormous and outrageously healthy.   This makes sense, nitrogen is the nutrient that makes plants green, and the compost bin is essentially a high nitrogen lasagna of horse shit, green plant material and shredded copies of the GRID.
