    If it has a waxy underside it should be a lambsquarter. I like it as a spinach substitute. A well cared for plant will grow really tall, I have some that are 8 feet tall. To harvest just go find where the stem starts to harden, go back a little to where it is tender, and break off this will be the point at which new growth spreads.

    Maybe a species of Chenopodium genus (goosefoots aka lambquatters). I’m guessing it might be Chenopodium album? Web site below also has a Google link to images of C. album. Check it out and see if you have a match.
