    hmmm - they leaves do look a bit like Eschscholzia californica (California Poppy), but it could also be a lot of other things...

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I think Pete may be right.  Whatever they are, they are growing a bit tall and lanky due to competing for light so I would pot them on into small pots for 2-3 weeks before planting out.  If more than one seedling is in each module, try and gently separate the roots otherwise leave the strongest one and pull the weaker ones out.  If they turn out to be Eschscholzia though, do the latter as those hate root disturbance.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
