Anyone know what kind of plants I've got that volunteered?  Two of "plant A" and three of "plant B."  These photos are over a week old, and "plant A," the stem-y, leaf-y ones have nearly doubled in size since then but I'm gonna be thrilled if I can figure out how to post them.  "Plant B" looks cabbage-y of some sort, but not sure.

 

OK, here goes...

Try #2:  There are two of "plant A" here - one is in the middle, the other is upper left.  Pardon the milk jug lol

Here's plant B - the brassica? looking one:http://i1239.photobucket.com/albums/ff503/onetrumpeter/391.jpg

 

And lastly, two shots of a wild flower - DD had to take a bath after the poison ivy all around it (didn't realize until after she brought me the flower that there was all that poison ivy there!)

The first looks like my potato sprouts.

The second really looks like the broccoli or cauliflower family to me.

The third? Was it on a vine? It looks like clematis or passionflower.

Thank you!!! Potato sprouts totally make sense!  Never grown potatoes before, hmmm...  neither have I grown broccoli or cauliflower.  But I can't figure out when I would have tossed out seeds for either of those.  Eyes of potatoes, yes, lol.  Will look up clematis and passionflower!  No, not on a vine.  The leaves are hard to make out, though, I know.  Thanks SO much!

the wildflower is definitely clematis!  I'd google searched but w/o a name it was really hard to figure it out.  Thanks so much, philomom!!!
