A friend and I just weeded my raised bed veggie garden. Yesterday while walking by it, I noticed 1000's of tiny seedling sprouts coming up. I have not planted anything yet due to the large amounts of rain and I also nee to get topsoil and put my compost on it. I have no idea what these sprouts are and how to get rid of so many. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Some could be something that reseeded its self from last year.
You'll see when they start to get true leaves. Othewise bury them with topsoil and compost. Id hoe them up first then bury.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Welcome to NGA, @hfhammons .

Use a hoe to disturb them now, while they're tiny. More may sprout following that; repeat with the hoe as necessary.

Was there some particular weed in your raised bed last year that went to seed?
