I went a bit nuts this winter spreading seeds and now I'm not sure what's a weed and what is supposed to be there. One of the packets of seeds I spread was a lettuce mix and I think this may have come from that but there's only two and they are a good 10 feet from each other so I have no idea. I also spread about 20 packets of random stuff that I don't remember...Obviously this isn't the best way of gardening but I have actually learned a ton about the weeds in my area from scrutinizing everything that has sprouted.
Info that may help with identification; not visible in the pictures but the underside of the leaves and stems are a bit hairy, I am in NW Florida, and this plant went from nothing to what you see in the pictures in a matter of a couple weeks...
I have very limited experience gardening so if this is something obvious, don't judge me

Looks like some kind of leafy green but I can't help but wonder if it is some kind of poppy.

I did throw out some poppy seeds too so that can definitely be it! I have tried sprouting them inside several times and it never worked. One of the reasons I tossed them outside was because I gave up on them. I've only ever seen the flowers so I had no idea what the plant would look like but looking at google there are a couple pictures that look just like my plant...

Poppies have a real strong dormancy. They say the seeds can stay dormant in the soil at least 100 years. Then suddenly, the soil is disturbed, and presto... poppies!
