Do you recognize the plant in this photo?

I found this plant in my veggie garden. I am wondering if it is an invasive weed of some kind or just what it might be. As you can see, it has bean pods. Thanks for any information.

looks like plain garden peas!

They do grow rapidly & vine around other things, so I'd give it room & make a teepee for it to climb:

just stick 3 sturdy sticks in the ground so that they meet at the top, & tie some twine around the top.

Someone on another forum identified the weed in the photo as Cassia obtusifolia, sicklepod. I googled it, and that is exactly what it is. Thanks for the help.
