Gardeners - Can you identify this?

I got some vegetable seeds a few months back and thought I knew everything I had planted, however I now have maybe two different plants that I have let grow thinking they were one of the vegetables. Now everything else has grown I'm pretty sure they are not something I planted and are probably just weeds. Any gardeners want to confirm this before I rip them out?

Initial thoughts/worries would be Japanese Knotweed. However, the leaves seem quite narrow in your photo rather than the familiar heart-shape.

They are weeds, don't know what they are, but I seem to able to grow them too!

Its a type of pigweed - just googled it.

I thought I had been cultivating some beautiful beetroots when I saw one of those growing in my planter. I was so upset when my mother told me it was a weed

As weeds go, its not that ugly or menacing. More like a wild plant than a pest.

weeds are only unwanted plants
so if a rose was in the garden and you dont want it it is a weed
