The second plant just popped up with a flat of natural dye plants and I don't recognize it as any of them....interesting leaves though and kind of familiar...
thanks for any help.

There are also a few members of the mint family that look similar.
What shape is the stem? Round or square?
Does it have a strong odor when crushed, or does it smell light and sweet (like cut grass)?
Thank you, Arkryal....
I just went out and got a fresh plant....round stem.....and definitely more of a strong odor when crushed...not 'edible' smelling.
i am beginning to wonder if this is the seed someone shared with me that they said was stinging nettles...it looks like I planted it and I don't see it any place else in the garden. I think I am about ready to do some 'chop and drop'.
I just noticed on these that they are just beginning to send up flower buds...I'll leave some to bloom for sure.
I suppose this is why folks keep records here are two pictures of the flowers.
the second plant in my first post is still a mystery! maybe it will turn out to be a thistle.

thanks Denis...the second plant doesn't look much different since I took the picture. i suppose when it flowers it will be clearer what it is. i think I would recognize mustard flowers.
