I do not recognize this but it looks like a weed showed up.

Does someone know what this is?

Thank you!

It grows like Prostrate Pigweed but the leaves look different. I'll keep looking after I go pull the plant out of that pot! Whistling

The leaves can vary in shape. I'm pretty sure it's Prostrate Pigweed (Amaranthus blitoides).

This site shows a picture that looks like mine. https://eorganic.org/node/5120

I'll consider this one solved. Thumbs up

Besty, thank you again for your help. Smiling
