Not!....What are they sprouting from ?....looks like potatos or another root crop.......

RE: Help identifying plant


does it have orange-yellow sap?
It may be Greater celandine (Chelidonium majus L.):
Check out the photos.

I bought it years ago in nursery not having idea what it is, and find seedlings ever since all over the garden. Just pull them out asap, try to get all of the root (just like dandelions). Definitely before they have seeds. Or if you like them in your garden, deadhed as soon as you see seedpods. I keep few, they have nice leaves & yellow flowers.
