I have two containers that I just threw a bunch of cool weather crop seeds and mini transplants into. I know one of them I planted with carrot seeds, and then scattered various lettuce seeds around. I can obviously tell the carrots, and most of the seedlings look like lettuce should. But in each container I have seedlings that look kinda like tomato seedlings. Broad, rounded leaves that are soft and a little fuzzy, and a fuzzy stem. I don't have a photo, but does anyone have any idea what this would be? it should be a type of lettuce.
I'm pretty sure it's not a tomato, I only used unopened seed packets of lettuces, carrots, and I can't remember if I maybe stuck a beet or a radish in there somewhere. I did transplant a couple of lettuces that I started early, but they were in separate containers from the tomato starts. Once I get my phone back (son dropped my IPhone in the toilet), I will try to get a picture
Okay, mystery solved. Knowing the smell distinctive to tomato leaves, I have determined them be tomato volunteers. I used my mel's mix I dug out of my original box to fill my containers, and have lots of volunteers in that mix. What's weird is they only showed up in some of the containers. What's really weird, is I made an all new mix for that box this year, and there are tomato volunteers in that as well. I have no idea how that happened, other than the fact that I purchased a blended compost from a place that has a twenty year old compost pile. What really sucks is the tomato volunteers in the containers looked healthier than any of the ones I started this year from seed, but I pulled them not knowing what they would produce.
