Better just wait and see. They don't look like lettuce to me but its not all that easy to tell from the photo. I hope I'm wrong in that case.

They look very much like the spinach I'm growing - which I'm now told is not proper spinach ! If they are same as mine we're eatng them in salads as they taste similar to lettuce.

I was thinking that they looked very much like some kind of mustard green, aka mustard spinach. Did the seedlings have heart-shaped seed leaves, like most Brassicas?

thank you every one I have tasted one of the leaves and they are a mustardy flavour so I think it they are maybe a mustard spinach.
So an interesting salad tonight !!!!
