    Keep an eye on this stuff. Someone might be able to decipher a much closer ID. Don't think this is regular edible carrot. The hairy stem is important. There are many members of this family that are very poisonous. I'd allow this to get larger to be able to identify more accurately. I lived in the middle of suburbia and raised a self planted dude like this, poison hemlock. I'd worry about those railroad ties...and the chemicals leached into your edible plant beds. Allow one to grow for fun and send a picture when more mature. Perhaps a seed head but do not allow to go to seed... – stormy May 1 '17 at 0:45
  • @stormy: maybe it is an other family. I'll not exclude Composite/Asteraceae family. – Giacomo Catenazzi May 1 '17 at 15:57

    @GiacomoCatenazzi This is always so much fun...to try to ID stuff by pictures and a few sentences. – stormy May 1 '17 at 18:48
  • Definitely Apiaceae family. Did you get a pic of the flower then? – J. Musser Aug 31 '17 at 18:23
