I haven't been able to start work on my garden till today. I was clearing unwanted grass and weeds and found this plant growing. Last year I had planted jalapenos and bell peppers in this spot.

It is a grouping of them growing together. I'm hoping it is something I planned on growing so that I can dig it up and replant.

If it helps, last year I was growing watermellon, sunflower, bell pepper, jalapeno, banana pepper, sweet peas, broccoli, cauliflower, and lettuce.

Thank you in advance!

Thank you for the quick replies! I did a search on what pokeweed was and remembered that I had a problem with those last year. Consider it ID'd. I had completely forgotten about it.
