I'm preparing my vegetable garden (I know I'm a bit late, just had a baby this winter), and these little plants are sprouting up all over my raised bed. There is one random mint plant, but I don't know what the rest are. They are definitely not mint. Can anyone tell if these are a vegetable that somehow reseeded from last year? Or are they a weed? Thanks! (I'm in southeastern PA btw)

I am so sorry to say that I can't see the detail of the plants. At first look, I thought it is cilantro, but I am sure they are not in the second picture. Do they have any scent? If they are re-seeded themselves, I would go ahead and start anew!

The majority of those plants are what people around me call pigweed (Chenopodium album). It's also known as lamb's quarters or wild spinach. It's a weed but edible with a flavor very similar to regular spinach but a little grainier. It looks like you also have a fire cherry or something coming up in the first one - but if it's the plant you featured in the second pic, that's pigweed.
