One of my 'rescue' plants from April. Don't know if it's a garden flower, a vegetable, or a weed.

Has only grown a bit since then.
No clue what this is but it is very slow growing. It's in a 3 inch pot. These are current pictures.

My first thought was Rumex of some sort because the leaves reminded of Bitter Dock (Rumex obtusifolius) that I found sprouting in a container a couple of years ago ... but I really don't have a clue. Smiling

I had a chance to look at a bunch of Rumex images online and my plant looks like a few of the 'seedling' images. Only thing is that mine is over 2 months old already. Wouldn't Rumex have grown a lot more in that time? I'll let it grow more and check back.

I once had Rumex pop up in a container with other plants; it started out as a tiny little thing and seemed to take three or four months before it got to this size:
