Forgotten seeds make for strange bedfellows

If I could remember not to snag a couple pitchforks of composted leaves for potting "mix" after I've thrown seeds in that spot, I wouldn't have 4'o'clocks coming up in my jade plant. Just slipped my mind about the seeds being there but as soon as I saw those sprouts I knew what happened. Don't mind another repot to separate them, just glad they sprouted - somewhere. If only I could couple what I know now with my ability to remember (and energy) of 20 years ago!

What odd combinations has forgetfulness caused you to have?

I use Oasis foam to start my seedlings, and I often reuse foam from seeds that didn't sprout in the bottom of containers when I pot my seedlings. This has caused some seeds to decide they *want* to grow- I have sunflowers coming out of pots with seeds that are more slow-growing!
