Need help, assuming it's a weed as it is invading , it's big , 2-3feet! Can anyone tell me what it is?

This one is also spreading fast, and I need gloves on as it irritates, what is it?

1st one. Interesting, i'd like to see it when it blooms. Plus you or we will know if it's ! Rip or leave !
2nd one. Could be stinging nettle.
I'd RIP-IT ### Hate that stuff.👺
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

1. Would be safer if it had flowers.
Maybe Inula magnifica.????

2. With those tiny seed pods I believe it is Mercurialis perennis...common name Dogs mercury.

Thanks silver surfer, I think you are right on both counts, the photos you included were very useful, esp. the dog mercury, in helping with the confirmation.
