I think I found another of the same weed like the one with the big fat horseradish-looking root.
Thank you all for helping me to identify it. I am going to let this one flower so I can find out for sure what it is.
Annie in Austin and Sandy thought it might be comfrey. I goggled it and it does not seem to be that one. Sandy also suggested centaura, which I have in another area and went out and compared the foilage. Quite similar but not the same.
I am inclined to think that Kathy might have something with her suggestion that it is a relative of evening primrose . . . Oenothera genus. If little yellow flowers appear, we might have it identified.
I know you will all be waiting with bated breath to see the bloom.
The specimen on the left is the new one in my garden. On the right is a primrose I nabbed off google images.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
