Just make sure you add enough dolomite every time you plant tomatoes. The snack is 1 tsp calcium nitrate

I'm betting it won't have the longevity of peat or coir based container mixes. And besides it's ridiculously priced

Large production of flowers often results in flower drop. Think about a Cherokee Purple tomato that produces >25 flowers at one time. There is no way the plant can produce enough energy via photosynthesis or fertilization to support this many fruits. The plant aborts flowers in respect to available resources.

It's probably a seed from last year that's growing. I get volunteers every year and let them grow. It's fun to see these volunteers out perform the new transplants.
