What kind of weed is this? I have one growing in the row I planted okra, and one similar growing near my sweet potato plant. My aunt said it was okra, but I have my doubts. Does anybody know what kind of weed/plant this is?

Ok it turned out to be cocklebur. I chopped it down before the seeds could set. Thanks everyone.
