 In our veg patch, not sure what it is but there are lots of them.

Any ideas?

    It might be Fat Hen (Chenopodium album.)  An easy weed to pull up but don't let it seed.

    It looks like common sage. The smell will tell you!

    If it is Fat Hen, it may have been sown as a vegetable - it is used widely by Indian cooks and is called Lambs Quarter -

    Sage has a rough/hairy surface to both sides of the leaf and as Jackie says very aromatic.

    Needs the scratch and sniff test. Enlarged it doesn't look like sage or fat hen but I haven't a better suggestionimage

    I was going to let some grow a bit longer to see if the leaves develop further.

    Does it smell of anything with or without rubbing Aubreii and has it got a woody stem at the bottom or is it all green and soft
