I have tons of tomato plants that reappeared this year so I was thinking these may be pepper plants?

Sorry. Mis-ID. Is it a smartweed? Look at the stem where the leave attaches. Does it have a knobby bit? (Pardon my exacting botanical jargon....) That would indicate a polygonum relative. Are the plants completely separate? or are they connected by an underground root?

They are not peppers, nor any other tomato relative. (And it's not pigweed, what was I thinking?)

Some kinds of perennial smartweeds can be hard to eliminate, so I would make sure that you have a positive ID on this one.
