Weeds, volunteers, mistakes and surprises

I was weeding the lettuce patch after a rain today and saw a few very odd-looking weeds that were really taking off. They didn’t look like the geraniums or wild lettuce or thistles or anything else I usually get in the veggie beds,  but there were several of them all in the same area. Imagine my surprise when I pulled them up!

I don’t believe we ever planted these, and the previous owner put their potatoes in a different bed, so I guess this happened somehow when I was building up the beds and shifting some dirt around. Sometimes mistakes can be OK.

Not going to tower these because I have no idea if they’re indeterminate, but hopefully they like it here okay.
