Tomato Sprout With 3 Leaves?

unless some random seed ended up in w/my tomato packet of seeds, I was surprised to find one my tiny sprouts open with 3 leaves. :)

I have had that happen a few times with tomatoes. The first time it freaked me out a bit. I thought I had a mutant, or some other seedling. They grew into normal producing tomatoes plants, so let it grow, and see what you get :) .

Ah, the wonders of nature. It should be fine, just let it grow!

If I don't lose it, will be anxious to see if it does anything different. gets bigger/smaller. puts off more/less.

But I'll probably lose track of it.
