So, this is my first shot at gardening. I planted a bunch of tomatos and babied them. I then realized that 2 of my plants look nothing like the others. At figured that they were just a different type of tomato (I planted 2 types). Now that all of my other tomoato plants have yellow flowers and are starting to produce fruit, I have come to the realization that these are not in fact tomato plants... I would just like to know what kind of plant (probably weed) I have diligently been taking care of all summer long!Any help is much appreciated.

The main difference between these mystery plants and my tomato plants are the flowers. This plant produced my little pink flowers in a bunch. Now the flowers are starting to fall off and there are black seeds inside. The "bunch" (for lack of a better word) is also very prickly.

(If it had narrow leaves it would be Loosestrife and a noxious weed, but these leaves look like mint to me.) Posted: 11:39 am on August 1st
