These three plants sprouted in our garden recently. We compost everything organic by throwing it in holes that we dig in the garden, so these could be anything. I know that they're not lettuce, because that's sprouting up all over the place. I know it's not cannabis, because I went to college.

Plants #1 and #2 might be the same, fuzzy stalks and leaves.

Plant #3, a squash of some sort? I don't know.


Unless I hear "these are certainly weeds" replies, I'll just let them go awhile and see what they turn into.

Here are the pictures, and I thank you for looking at this thread:

Mystery plant #1

I am not sure why these would be growing in a desert, but they look like:
1 maybe baby sunflower?
2. Some sort of cabbage relative?
3. Baby mulberry tree?

Because things grow GREAT here in the desert so long as the irrigation system gives it enough water.

Sunflower is a possibility. Mulberry is not. I've never taken cabbage to seed, so that isn't it.
