Gah... wont let me upload pics :( basically I just wanted for y'all to let me know if it was lettuce and the tomatoes growing already, they all sprouted some litlittle plants and wanted yall ti let me know if it was for sure or not just cuz I cant tell if it should be some grass growing again in the area or the actual plant starting to grow. The tomatoe one for sure looks different than the lettuce one but the lettuce one looks kinna the same as some grass growing around again in other parts just makes me debate since the plant is sprouting right where it was planted so yeah makes me excited to think something is going on just after 4 days :)

You'll have to thin the tomatoes when they're a few inches high to one every 12 to 18 inches, and thin the lettuce to one every 4 inches or so.  Otherwise they'll crowd out each other and won't thrive.

really? yay how exciting :) I was trying to upload the o the other pic but wont let me cuz there's some little plants exactly like the lettuce growing on the other end no where close to the lettuce but close to the grass that had me wondering is it grass or lettuce? any chance the seed could of gotten moved by the rain we had the day they were planted? is that even possible lol

Yes that is possible. That is why I have lettuce in my flower bed.
