My first impression is MULLEIN. Check out this file of pictures. Truly a weed but has medicinal value. Not sure which one but you might be able to recognise what you've got.

  • Mullein has no compound leaves and is more or less hairy. Note the white slowers with the dark spot on the right: @Rosie's right about fava.
