What is this mystery "weed"?

Look what I just found growing in the container with my marigolds! I suspect a seed for it was in with the dirt from my yard that I used in my homemade potting soil mix.

The man who cuts my lawn at one time pointed out an edible weed that was growing around my house. I don't remember what it was, though. Does anyone know what this plant is?

A mallow. Maybe Malva neglecta?

Wow -- I just looked up mallows, and they can grow really big! I might transplant this into a larger pot and grow some for salad.
