Welcome! to NGA

Is this something you planted? Something you dug up in the yard? Was given to you?

Can you update you information to include you location?

This was planted from a seed and those looked quite like a typical carrot seed. It was something I was given without any other info of what it is.

Could it be Rumex of some sort? For some reason it reminds me a bit of Dock.
Red-veined Dock (Rumex sanguineus var. sanguineus)
Bloody Dock (Rumex sanguineus)
Bitter Dock (Rumex obtusifolius)

It reminds me of Celosia but that wouldn't fit if the seeds looked like carrot seeds and it's supposed to be a vegetable.

More likely Celosia or Amaranth.

I agree the apperance is a close match but the either seeds of those plants don't look like the ones I planted.

It is also possible that a seed germinated that was already in the soil or delivered by birds and your seed did not.

I agree with Amaranthus of some sort. I planted a wildflower seed mix and some of what came up looked like the link Lin posted. Hopefully, I now know what it is.
