This volunteer is growing in a part sun area of my garden. It is about to bloom. I'm hoping someone might know what it is?

Compare with chenopodium... Probably album.
Fairly common garden plant... most of us grow it as a vegetable.

Pretty much inedible now, but you can collect the seeds and prepare like quinoa... a close relative....
