Based on the leaf shape, you have a couple of cottonwood trees (Populus deltoides) growing in your pot. I had the same thing a few years ago - I was trying for aspens and wound up with cottonwoods (they're cousins, kind of). To confirm my answer, just wait a few weeks: the leaves should have absolutely no fall color and just turn brown, with a leathery feel.
