    Probably Cnidoscolus texanus. Texas Bull nettle. They say that you can eat the nuts… Related plants include Mala Mujer (Cnidoscolus angustidens) and 7 minute itch (Cnidoscolus stimulosus) They are all problem weeds, but yours seems to have a greater potential for food than ours in georgia (Cnidoscolus stimulosus)
