I've been wondering about some volunteer plants that sprouted when I planted strawberry spinach seeds.

I've just spent hours tracking it down (it's really hard to ID plants) and I THINK they're Goat Weed, AKA Woolly Croton, AKA Hogwort.

The leaves smell like bay/sage, but it's toxic, I think. It doesn't seem very woolly, but it does smell like sage. I think it's only supposed to grow to maximum 3 foot tall, and is a host plant for the larvae of the Ruddy Daggerwing butterfly- which I've seen only ONCE. So... I guess I'll leave the weeds live.
