I planted my garden a few weeks ago and where I planted the basil this plant popped up. I can't find any pictures of basil that look like this. If anybody could help identify it would be appreciated

I think it is called Lamb's Quarters. If so, it is edible, raw or in soups. It can grow several feet high.

Use in place of spinach, I love them! when very young, I put into salad, then I used in stir fries and smoothies.....

they reseed like anything. I allow one to reseed partially each year, but I clip off about 75% of what wants to seed.

They are prolific! I might go every other year on the seed allowance!
