Plant identification

Asked April 8, 2020, 2:27 PM EDT

This volunteer plant came up in my vegetable garden this spring. What is it? A few years ago I planted beets. Could it possibly be a beet plant? Thanks,

Harford County Maryland

We think this looks like lettuce.


Thanks. I've never had a lettuce that was a dark purple like this, but I like it, so I'm going to let it go to seed and then harvest the seeds.
