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.

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.
