What is this plant/weed?

image

I've planted about 12 different types of flowers (annuals) in my main flower bed from seeds (all neatly in their own section, not scattered everywhere).

However, this stuff is growing everywhere in the flower bed. It's also growing in some of my patio pots. Have no idea what it is.

    Fat hen - it's an annual weed common in disturbed soil (particularly on agricultural land). 

    It's also grown as a green vegetable known as Lambs' Quarter and used in Indian cooking. 

    Just pull it up before it seeds.image

  • Thanks Logan. That's it. We are very near both a farm and a plant nursery.

    Will have to spend this afternoon removing it.
