What ever it is, I'm wondering why was it left untouched for so long being that close to the Tomato? I get rid of anything trying to germinate around my vegetable plants.


OP might want to consider fertilizing his Tomato plant bit more now.

Poke grows quickly. Don't let the size fool you, that is a young plant. They can get man high around here by the end of May. As a weed, they aren't as much of a problem as many others. They do have medicinal properties, but misuse can kill: https://www.drugs.com/npp/pokeweed.html

It's really evil when the birds ear the berries and leave purple splotches all over your car.

Well, we joke that the secret to dealing with all the "evil" flora and fauna is to find someone to eat it.

Market it to tourists as authentic heirloom food.

OP, open a roadside stand. LOL

No lie! Turn your back for a day and it's as high as in the OP's pic. Wait till August
