New to gardening. I've been babying this plant. Thought it was going to be okra. It's not. Is it a weed or some other vegetable plant?

Perhaps Abutilon theophrasti, velvetleaf. Considered a weed.

do not let it go to seed.. kill it now ..

if pulling it out will disturb other nearby plants... just cut it to the ground..and keep doing that.. until it understands who is in change of this garden ...
