Must have thrown out the seed packet (unlike me). I think it's some kind of greens. I do remember I was planting lettuces that day. But I put it in a separate place so maybe only related to the lettuces.

It looks like Pokeweed but if you planted it to eat, probably not. Smiling

I agree.

You're right - it does look like pokeweed. Plus my plants have a reddish stem. The picture doesn't show that too well. I'm now thinking maybe it's red Malabar spinach.
I guess when it gets bigger it may do something that will make it obvious what it is.
