Plant or weed?



Do you know what this is? Is it a plant or a weed? It popped up in my garden and its the ONLY one of its kind. I planted some seeds that never sprouted so I dont know if its one of those or something else...

  • I also had a BUNCH of weeds growing around that area and I found this when weeding..I kept it because none of the other weeds looked anything like it...

  • I can't get a good look at the leaves. My first thought was tree, too, but there is a weed that has purple berries that looks a lot like this and does spread so is a nuisance. What did you plant? Maybe if we know this we'll know whether this plant is what you planted? I wouldn't remove it yet in case it is something you want to keep.

  • in that general area I planted tomatoes but I know its not that because I have a bunch of toamtoe plants...the only trees around that area are pepper trees and I know thats not it...i planted egg plants and peppers in that general area to...I also planted basils but I grew those somewhere else and they dont loook anything like that...Im starting to think it may just be a weed...but its been there for like a month or two..its about 2 inch tall and it hasnt made any others...I also planted carrots and pumpkins but they dont look like that. Should I just wait and see if it grows something on it?
