Q.Can tomatoes grow where they were never planted?

Anonymous added on July 14, 2020 | Answered

Planted tomatoes in ground. Around the garden I have hanging baskets. Last week I noticed tomato plants growing in two of my hanging baskets. I have had this same setup for years and never had this happen. Is this unusual-since one of the baskets has strawberries, a non compatible plant for tomatoes?
