Unknown root in vegetable garden

Dug this up in my garden but I have no idea what it is. It smells like a lettuce but I am stumped. It is a raised garden so the only things in there would be stuff I planted. (or my kids) lol. Thanks.

Question about lawn care fraud

Is it possible for an unscrupulous lawn care company to somehow spray or spread weed seeds into your yard? Over the past 2 months 5 or 6 houses in our neighborhood have subscribed to some local lawn care service that sprays something on their lawn that turns it green. In almost every case, next door to those houses, those homes are ate up with henbit. Now, about a month ago our neighbor got the green treatment. Suddenly, our yard is covered in purple henbit weeds. My other neighbor says this yard has never had a weed in it, and remarked that this seems insane to suddenly be covered in them. In my backyard, you can see where the henbit line ends, and no more weeds exist in the rest of the yard. Where the henbit is....is all accessible by road and sidewalk. If there is no road or sidewalk access outside my fence, there is no henbit. Am I imagining things, or does my theory at least possibly hold water?

How to incorporate agriculture into a child's daily routine.

I work at an after school daycare for about 3 hours each day and we mainly play the entire time but I have been considering doing a few fun demonstrations or activities for the kids that involve agriculture and can teach the children a few things simultaneously.
