Heirloom tomatoes planted from seeds from tomatoes then pots caught in storm & turned over in gravel yard.

I had planted Heirloom tomatoes this spring (Prescott Valley, AZ) in 4 inch “starter” pots. Sadly, during a spring night, a week or so after planting, wind and rain came in and dumped the pots and I thought I lost all the seeds. About a week ago, 4 plants showed up within 1.5 to 2 feet of one another in the gravel just off my patio. The Monsoons are here now and the rain got them growing, apparently. Can I leave them where they are and water and care for them in the gravel. I can put a fence around them so they will not be trampled by my dog, or I can move them to the flower garden (wood chips in that garden). Don’t know yet if they are purple or red or maybe both as they are only about 7 to 8 inches tall. I had fertilized the original potting soil, but don’t know if any stayed with the seeds… Suggestions? So happy I found this website! Thank you for your help!! Pam pamelasco@aol.com I can send photo from my I-pad if you wish.

Since they are still small, you could go ahead and move them to the garden. Be sure to dig up enough of a rootball so as not to disturb the roots if possible.
