Hey All,

We were given some soil to fill our garden planter box, and this 3 foot plant showed up. It has these strange brown 'pods' and large soft leaves. Any ideas what this is? We've been watering it but maybe we should be yanking it instead...

Tnx for any info!

Looks like velvetleaf (preparing to drop a lot of seeds.)

I would be yanking before those seeds start to fall. It is a real problem for many parts of the U.S.
