This sapling sprouted up this spring as a volunteer, so it is less than a year old. It is in my vegetable rows. It is about 4 feet tall now, what is it?

Perhaps a mulberry.
Abelmoschus has opposite leaves so rule that one out.

Compare to link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Mulberry

Thanks for the help, this is definitely an area where there has been birds congregating in the past, so mulberry fits I think.

It was interesting seeing the volunteer plants this year, a jalapeno plant, some sunflowers, squash, and a few others.

People ask about apparently quite abundant Morus alba seedlings here repeatedly, with the characteristically diverse leaf shapes of the species being a cause for confusion and disagreement. There is a tendency for young plants to have deeply lobed leaves while more developed examples may display few or no divisions.
