Those aren't weeds, they're alpine strawberries by the looks of it! The term 'weeds' though, like much else, is relative. Either way, you have two edibles there that will grow just about anywhere, without needing much attention or even cultivation. How brilliant is that?

Tomato seeds, interestingly enough, are propagated by poop. Most red fruit are, strawberries included, they contain certain toxins or rather irritants, that prevent them from being damaged by the digestive process, thereby ensuring they pass through us, ready wrapped in fertiliser. If you are ever in the vicinity of a sewage processing plant you will find that tomatoes grow around there in abundance. It would be a reasonable guess that someone pooped in the car park. Not that I am pointing fingers at anyone.

You could be right on the tomato part, could be the cats or some other animal pooped there, who know really. But ya the place is full of weeds not only the tomatoes and sunflowers, but a whole bunch of other stuff.
