Hello all,

Like almost all of you, I have so many things coming up right now. I realize some are weeds but before I yank them, I would like to know what they are. Here is the first one. This is appearing in a brand new bed and there are several of them.

Thank you so much in advance for any help you can give!Thumb of 2013-05-21/bennysplace/991412

It's very similar to Fat Hen or Lamb's Quarters, Chenopodium album.

I go with Fat Hen, although I didn't know the common name (just like I don't know the botanical one either - weeds, not my specialty).
But I know it's THAT weed.

Looks more like a species of Atriplex to me. Maybe Halberdleaf Orach (Atriplex subspicata).

Thank you all for your replies. I think I am going to let one or two of them mature to see what it grows up to be. I am intrigued now. There are probably a good dozen of them growing at least with more growing all the time. This will be a dedicated perennial bed once the tulips start declining so all but one or two will have to go considering they are nothing I planted. Smiling Thank you again. I will keep you all updated!

Looks like Lamb's Quarters to me. The grown up plant is ugly and weedy, but young plants are delicious.

Looks like the stuff that tries to take over my flower beds and containers! It's quite prolific around here. Unfortunately, I can't take my revenge by eating it; tried it and I don't care for it. Some people love it, tho.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
