    Amaranth. Not sure which variety. Most people are familiar with the seeds in multi-grain bread, but the seeds are tedious to separate and clean from the rest of the seed head. Instead, cook and eat the leaves like you would kale, collards or other cooked greens. They are a powerhouse of nutrients.
    Maybe only one plant this year, but you will probably have them for years to come since they re-seed easily. It's best to cut them before the heads ripen and form seeds. I personally grow the deep red version which means it's easy to spot the seedlings. I remove most, but allow a half dozen or so to grow so I can pick, cook and freeze the leaves for winter meals.

    If you like it it's a plant, if you don't like it it's a weed.

    I've always called it Milkweed and I pull it out of garden before seeds fall.
