Persistent little tomatoes

This year, I decided to forego my tomato garden and plant hundreds of zinnia seeds instead. In the past, I have tried to grow zinnias without much success. I thought they might appreciate the conditions of the raised bed where moisture is more consistent than handwatering in smaller containers. I turned over the old soil and amended it as I usually do each year and sowed probably 150 zinnia seeds. So far, the zinnias haven't sprouted in the numbers I had hoped. But guess what? Seeds from the old tomatoes are! Persistent little things. Probably won't amount to anything since they are so small and it's almost July. But I still don't have the heart to kill them, especially since they volunteered themselves. My mom says she will adopt them and put them in her garden.
