Or it could be a poppy. Leave a few to grow and flower.

That looks like a poached egg plant seedling to me.  It self seeds everywhere, but is very bee and hover fly friendly and is very good at smothering out other weeds...

I've weeded them quite a bit but I'm sure I can fine one somewhere :)

This has appeared on my plot this year, lots come up in a defined area. Just wondering if it could be the remnants of corn planted in this area a couple of seasons ago which squirrels decimated and scattered around.  Or is it just a grass seed that has blown in?

Sure is, Snowy!

We have an identical one growing about a yard from last year's crop!

What I can't understand is how just one seed actually got there, as we used the entire crop last year...

In fact, I'm amaized;0)

Or it could be something like millett or sorgum that has grown from bird seed. Leaves and tillers at the bottom do not look right for sweetcorn.

Actually, you have a point there, Salmo, as we have a bird feeder close by...

It reminds me of the ornamental millets that I have seen in garden centres, so maybe this is millet. Let it seed and you can feed it to the birds, Growster, or have enough for a small crop to sow next year perhaps?
