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.

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.
:nail: I think we have a winner! The two cells directly above the Red Malabar Spinach were Borage! I had no idea what it would look like, so I'm so happy to hear that! Gotta watch that midnight gardening
I love it !! I have a picture of someone midnight gardening.. with my face mind you .. (its the one I know ) lolol I picture squinty eyes .. rubbing them .. etc.. using the artificial tears even to get through it those tiny seeds. lolol
So very glad the mystery is solved!!

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.
