What is this plant?

shadygarden_CO(z5 Denver)August 1, 2011

This plant turned up in my daughter's garden. Is it a weed or some strange bean? My daughter thinks it is a week, but it sure is a strange one.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Those are the seed pods of something in the Brassica (cabbage) family. Could be kale, broccoli or any number of similar things. There would have been 4 petalled yellow flowers before the pods.
