Hmmm...I see it both in my original post and when you quoted it.

Anyone else?

Looks rather like an artichoke to me but it cannot be an artichoke because no one accidently plants an artichoke. You would know.

I have no idea but do you have a few options? You've received guesses that range from pick it and munch on it lettuce to tobacco which I am thinking you wouldn't want a kiddo just taking a munch of.

That was my second guess ...

Not a lot of stuff I know of has a flat oval non-serrated leaf like that as a seedling

Did you plant the seeds and something got mixed up?
In that case, what seeds were you planting?
If you give us a few choices, it may make it easier to choose.

Actually, I had it labeled as the Red Malabar Spinach you sent me! Obviously not that as I have 3 other plants coming up that are the real thing. I was starting seedlings in a 32 cell Burpee thing and would take them out and put in a cup (as seen in the pic) as soon as they sprouted. I can't be 100% sure on anything since I do such things around midnight after the kids have gone to bed and I've cleaned the house, but I labeled it as Red Malabar Spinach. It doesn't look like anything I have seeds for, but I also planted seeds from others on the forum at the same time.

Poor thing. If it is some kind of lettuce I guess I'll see how it does indoors. Supposed to be 97 degrees today.

In the beginning, borage strongly resembles cucumbers! In fact, I thought that's what was growing a couple of years ago, only to learn that borage and cukes have similar flavors. I don't know whether they're related botanically.
