I've been using a worm composter to make my own compost and when I planted my kale this year all of these little plants started popping up out of nowhere... Some of them are clearly tomatoes, which makes sense. But I cannot for the life of me figure out what this one is AND ITS EVERYWHERE!

I think the hairier ones are amaranths, the ones with less hair are datura.

Or a Solanum.

Other than tomatoes, what have you been composting? Any other veggies? It reminds me of black nightshade, we have a lot of that on campus. Whatever it is you could pull it up and add it to your worm bed.

maybe tomatillo (Physalis)...although, my first thought on seeing the hairy leafed plant was possible eggplant.

looks like some good seed starter that you have there...

There are potato-leaf tomato varieties too. It looks like they could be that.
