Have this plant that has turned up growing in my container with blueberry plant. Has serrated edge somewhat with light design on leaves and some little seed pods. Here's a photo.

Looks like some kind of amaranth aka "pigweed."

It looks like a weedy amaranth we have growing here "wild" - but amaranths all look so much alike.  They are all edible.
