I'm not sure what this is. I first got exciting thinking its Sassafras but the stem looks softer, more like a plant than a tree. It's growing in a bed of garlic. Hoping it's something good for a change but also may need to be removed?

Ragweek was my first thought too ... I've been finding common ragweed here in my Florida yard the past month. As porkpal suggested, yours may be seedlings of Giant Ragweed (Ambrosia trifida)

Yikes, I don't want that in my garlic bed! Thank you both, I'll go check further. Thumbs up

Here's a couple more pictures I tried to take just a few minutes ago. The lighting isn't good right now but I tried. After looking closer I was thinking it might really be sassafras.

Off to look at giant ragweed images...

From these last three photos, those could very well be seedlings of Sassafras (Sassafras albidum) Check out some of these images of Sassafras seedlings: https://www.bing.com/images/se...

Sassafrass has alternate leaves. Your seeding is opposite.

Thank you Rick.

I was looking at the pictures earlier and I can see that the stem looks like it might have ridges and the leaves have some serration, which would not be sassafras. I'm thinking it must be something I've seen before, maybe some kind of amaranth?

Good eye, Rick. My eyes saw those leaves as alternate but my eyes deceive me all the time! Green Grin!

I know what you mean Lin, my eyes just cannot see as well as they used to! I'm still looking.

I may just pull it up because it's probably a weed by definition, a plant growing where its not wanted!

After looking at some old pictures I have of Giant Ragweed, that must be what this is!

See the bottom leaves? They sure look like the one in question. And the more I look, the more I'm sure. I'm going to consider this one solved.

Thank you all for your help.
