I need help identifying what type of plant this is. I bought some seed for basil, oregano, parsley, etc. and this grew among them. I was wondering what it could be? I live near Toronto if that may help, if its a wild plant?

I'm pretty sure this is one of the smartweeds, similar to Polygonum odoratum, (previously Persicaria odoratum), also known as Vietnamese coriander. Don't take that as gospel, it might be one of the other smartweeds, there's lots of them, but a drawing of P. odoratum showing stem arrangement and the marking on the leaves here https://www.123rf.com/photo_31927479_vietnamese-coriander-polygonum-odoratum-or-persicaria-odoratum.html
To me it seems an asparagus lettuce. I got the seeds from a friend. But googling, it seems not very like the celtuce. On the other hand, when growing, I see the form of asparagus in this lettuce.
I'm alive, so it is edible, and I think some seeds for nearby cultivation mixed with the regular one.
