I came up to my garden, and spotted this plant. I am wondering if it is a weed, or if it is a vegetable. It is growing in North Carolina, United States.

It looks like it might be erechtites hieraciifolius, which is a weed in the daisy family native to North America.

Additionally, if it doesn't resemble something you've planted in that general location within the last couple years, it's unlikely it's a vegetable.
