Seems like this is probably a weed

Thanks! I wish I would have seen the other ragweed post. Would have saved some time.

By the way, those aren't seeds yet, those are the flower buds emerging. The flowers never really turn into a showy flower, in fact some people don't think they bloom but they open just enough to release and receive pollen on the wind.

Open just enough to kill my husband's allergies :)

Thank you! I'm still learning my terminology. And as you can see, I'm still learning my plants, too. I'm so excited about my new garden. Hopefully I don't kill anything (that isn't a weed). They've been treated pretty poorly and were overgrown, so I'm hoping everything here is pretty hardy if it's still here.
