I just know that I grew these from seeds and the labels washed off and I threw away the package. They may be something that can be used instead of spinach, or some kind of greens to use in smoothies. And then again… I had so many seeds that I planted, and all labels got wet. Could be a flower or a veggie. Sorry, I know this one may be difficult. The top of the plant is very distinctive, the way the crown appears rounded. The plants are maybe 40-60 days old.

    Laura735, I do believe that you are right. I remember that I planted some Chia seeds and the plants look exactly like it. The little flower, too. Even though the one flower that I saw came right out of the side of the stem. I don’t see how I can add another photo here.

    With out flowers, I’m guessing only. These plants look like some thing of the mint family ( Lamiaceae), maybe chia (Salvia hispanica)? Chia is considered a super food. You know for certain as these plants mature. Best wishes!

    It looks like some kind of herb. Does it gave an aroma when you pinch one of the leaves?
