Looks like a pokeweed to me.
Not necessarily a bad thing...

Ooh, I haven't had Pokeweed in a while. I didn't think about that. The birds do poop out the seeds around here, but not lately. Bird slackers! I'm going to let it grow because there's nothing else right in that immediate area, anyway.

It sure reminds me of Pokeweed (P. americana) too. I used to see it pop up on occasion at our old house.

Woo hoo! Going to let it grow and enjoy those berries. They're so pretty, aren't they?
