unknown plant in raised bed garden

Late last summer I planted some cabbage seed for my fall garden and figured it didn't come up. I covered the raised bed with plastic since I had some other things growing over winter. Early this spring I noticed two plants growing, but I don't think they're the cabbage I planted. I had thought possibly volunteer chicory, or a weed (probably a weed). But before I pull it, I was hoping someone could help me identify it. Any thoughts?
