Post  woppa on 7/24/2013, 3:46 pm

I thought it was sage but now I'm not so sure from looking at some pics on the web. Anyone know what this is?

No it doesnt have a smell at all really. Can't be sage. It also has some white dust covering some of the leaves, mold perhaps? If it is lamb's quarters, how would I use it in food?

Looked up lambs quarters, and that is certainly what it is, it even mentions the white powder on the lower leaves. Good call dvelten!

Now I know what Lamb's Quarters looks like!  I pull it out of my beds and walkways all the time!  Should start collecting it along with my volunteer crop of purslane for a weed salad.

I don't see any lighter topmost leaves in your photo.  Maybe its my old eyes.
The upper leaves on lamb's quarters are lighter than the lower ones and can be quite wide and serrated and it looks like this:


Below is sage:

The leaves are more or less uniform in color except for the powdery stuff and definitely not as wide as those. Could it be something else? Everything I've looked up on lambs quarters describes this plant perfectly.
