May we ask what seeds you have planted in your garden? That might be of help.

Did you plant anything like Amaranth?

Oh, and your soil looks marvelous. Reminds me of the garden soil at my parents' house in Florida. Thumbs up

They are small but guessing , and it is totally a guess, what is a datura and what is a tomato?

I would plant them or pot them and find out for the sake of just finding out.

This is a rented plot in a comunity farm that is why i dont know if its a weed or a seed from the previous occupant.. and the reason the soil looks like that is that its in dubai and usually plots are sand by default .. then we mix it with compost and soil with each transplant.

Thanks. I would suggest letting them grow either in the plot or repot them and be surprised. If they turn out to be 'weeds', you can always destroy them at a later time. Who knows? You may be happy once they identify themselves. Thumbs up

Maybe eggplants and tomatoes.

Many times, I've had interesting plants come up that I couldn't ID. and let grow. Why couldn't I ID them ? Because, there a weed ! I'm pretty positive, yours is also. I had one that looked just like yours, I let grow. Made big buttercup white flower, then I realized what it was. A wild flower that kids will dry and smoke, to get high. Problem is ! It will either put them in hospital, or kill them.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Ok, I give. What plant are you talking about? Belladonna is pink, Digitalis is... pink, yellow-ish, spotty. Datura? Already suggested. Why are teenagers coming onto your property and smoking your weeds?

I would love keep that tomatoes, to know if they are of good variety. For the other plant, consider Solanum nigrum, a common weed, but again wait a little longer till true ID comes out.
