Unexpected lettuce

I remember sowing the blood-veined sorrel on the left in one of the greenhouse raised beds, towards the end of the growing season in 2010. But all that lettuce that's coming up on the right? I don't have any recollection of sowing that. In fact, I'm fairly sure I didn't. The even more weird thing is that exactly the same surprise appearance of lettuce happened last spring, in the same bed. Not that I'm complaining - it's a welcome sight!

It looks like nice (and tender) lettuce. I have red veined sorrel (not quite as advanced as yours). We will have to remember to eat it this year - last year I just watched it grow and admired it until it grew old and tough.

Greetings, Amanda. How odd that it would come up twice... That sorrel looks lovely. I've never grown sorrel, but I should look into it.
