|Both these unknowns were wintersowed. I feel like I should know what this first one is but just don't. It's kind of leggy from lack of sun right now. Here are two views:|
This other one is frustratingly nondescript to me at this stage--other than being rather chartreuse. Just narrowing down the genus would be nice:

|The first one looks like Ipomea.|

|Maybe a morning glory of some sort--I sowed them at the same time as the angelonia during spring-sowing, and this pot was labeled angelonia. None of those seedlings survived, though. It doesn't really look like it wants to vine... at least not yet.|
I'm so sorry these are sideways. I'll try and fix it--thought I did before I uploaded. No idea why the iphone loads pics sideways...

|I did try again. The pics all show up in the correct orientation on my computer, but once uploaded they go sideways.|

|If the first one's leaves are soft, it is Velvetleaf (Abutilon theophrasti).|
An agricultural field weed with interesting seed pods.

|That is it exactly. Thank you, Rick. I've never seen this one growing in my area, so must have come with the hand-gathered angelonia seeds I sowed from a trade. Interesting. |
I'll watch the other one for developments that make it more familiar or could give you all any more clues.
