I'm finding this coming up in a number of spots. Not sure what it is, I've never noticed it before.

I'd say its a weed at first glance.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

I think it is a weed in the mustard family. I'm not sure which one off the top of my head. Some are edible but best to get a definitive ID if possible, just to be safe.

It does look like some kind of mustard plant. I wouldn't advise eating it just yet...
Maybe you could let them mature, keep a photo journal, then collect and photograph the seeds. That should help get a pretty good ID.
