I agree. Pick a leaf and smell it. If it has a slightly minty, wonderful smell, like the So Cal back country, it is salvia.

I'm going to tag my query on the end of this one rather than create a new thread.
I found this volunteer in my front landscape bed. I'm certain I've seen this plant before, with flowers, in someone's yard, or maybe at a botanical garden. But it wasn't recently enough for me to even remember what color the flowers were/will be to help me look up possibilities. The leaves are a lighter green than many of the things that pop to mind for me. Anyone recognize it? Maybe a marigold type or relative?

Maybe! I initially rejected that thought, but, flipping through the web, it seems that the plant I'd learned as tansy from my mom's herb garden wasn't the 'common' tansy, but was more likely the Lake Huron tansy.

The volunteer looks pretty similar to common tansy leaves I'm seeing online. If that's what it is, it's amusing I was planning on growing it this year. I may try to snag those volunteers and pot them up for putting next to the squash instead of using my just-sprouted seedlings. (I plan to keep them deadheaded so I don't aerially spam other gardeners with wind-sent volunteers.)

Sweet Cicely is my first guess...or Poison Hemlock...Cow Parsnip -- they look very much alike. If you're not sure which it is, and if you didn't plant it you may want to get rid of it -- but please read about removal/disposal of hemlock beforehand!

Thank you Beetles. thanks Why create a new thread about the same topic, is my motto. I occasionally merge threads about the same topics.

Two of them popped up like this.  They popped up much quicker and larger than the other stupice seedlings.

That looks like something in the squash/cucumber family. Are you using a mix that contains compost that could have had a zucchini/pumpkin/etc. included - i.e. seeds that survived?

Squash, melon, along that line.  Vine, cucumber maybe.

It must have come from the soil. Tomato seeds are small and melon/squash are large. I had several come up in my beds from compost last summer!

Yeah.  I agree with you guys the more I think about it.  Anything that I could be has a seed that couldn’t be confused with tomato, so it must have come from my compost.   I hope that doesn’t continue to happen. I used some of that compost in the very bottom of the new bed I just filled up.

Brian, Volunteers are easy to remove from the beds - either because it's the wrong seedling in the square or it's not in the proper spacing. My though is to cut the plants off in the seed pots rather than pull out and disturb the intended seed.
