    Hi guys! New member here.

    I was out clearing our new allotment plot, and I found this plant. I thought it looked like something the previous plot holders had planted (I also found some runner beans, strawberries, potatoes, and carrots).

    I can't figure out what it is, so maybe it was just a lonely weed? It looked to be the only one of its kind. IMG_20171125_142620.jpg IMG_20171125_142620.jpg IMG_20171125_142628.jpg IMG_20171125_142643.jpg

    Perhaps a brussel sprout seedling?

    That's what I thought, but I've never grown brussels so I don't really know what they look like in the ground.

    Could be Broccoli or sprout, as pointed out by other.

    I'm leaning toward Broccoli.... Brussels Sprouts leaves start closer to the ground, usually

    I'm sticking to BS because it looks like some of the lower leaves have already fallen off and also the remaining leaves have the close spaced spiral growth of BS.

    Welcome aboard @Eden!

    I'm tempted to say Brussel Sprout too.
