Would you believe that both of these lettuce plants are the same variety? For some reason, one is forming a nice head, as advertised, and the other is all stalky and tall. Does anyone know why? Mark's theory is that since this lettuce was grown from heirloom seeds, the outcome can be unexpected. While this is certainly true, could there be another explanation?

I just saw this post for some reason.
We have a few anomalies in our garden as well. One of our "broccoli" plants started sprouting beans.

The tall one seems like it's bolting.

Yes, that seems the likeliest explanation, but it's strange that the two plants grew in the same spot, but one formed a head while the other bolted.
