One of the benefits, I've discovered, of abandoning my garden last year and letting everything go to seed is that, well, everything went to seed and now we're getting little surprises in our raised beds. Like these little leaf lettuces. I didn't get to try any of our lettuce last year before it bolted so I'm actually quite excited about harvesting these little guys and having a salad or two. The downside to this "gardening in arrears" is that there are all sorts of little seedlings coming up and it's hard to tell what is edible and what are weeds. I guess I'll just have to maintain my wait-and-see approach.
