I forgot what herb I planted!

I planted this around May/June. This is what it's been looking like for a couple months.
What is it??

Re: I forgot what herb I planted!

Unless you planted a cultivated polygonum (Polygonum orientale, kiss-me-over-the-garden-gate, princess feather) it's probably one of the weedy variety.

Here's a forum member who grows them in his garden. Compared to his, yours' leaves are narrow.

Well, I normally let them grow where they start. This year they are part of the okra row

Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.
