While doing some work in the garden we stumbled upon a plant we can't identify. We already tried using a plant identification app but are unsure of the results.

We had some Papaver in the vicinity that looks kind of similar, but we are unsure if that's really it. We fear it might be some kind of Ragweed.

Can any of you help with identifying it?

We are in south-east Germany, the pictures were taken today.

    Poppy seems very much like it (Papaver like you guessed already). Wait for the flowers to be sure.

Without flowers it is a bit hard to tell, I suggest

I am also rather certain that it is not ragweed.

PS: https://identify.plantnet.org/ is a great resource which also comes as an App.
