    It grows here and most people consider it a weed but those I have sprout a pretty little yellow flower on them. I am a different kind of gardener and if a plant is pretty and I like it then it is definitely not called a weed by me. I just can't remember what it is called.

      A weed is really just a stray plant. Think of all the perennials that can be mistaken as weeds if they weren't in a bed or pot.

    Looks a little like a variety of squash...did you throw seeds in the compost? If the bloom is yellow, that's another sign that it is a squash.

    deffo not potato or squash - leaves are wrong. Aubergine? It would have purple flowers like little morning glories, both being solanacea. (might have spelt that wrong). Looks a bit like datura, but that has white flowers. I think it is burdock. look out for spiky pods after the flowers

    It may be jewelweed; it grows wild all over Canada.
