Those mystery seeds

Remember when I wrote about those mystery seeds?

Well, they did grow, only they were still a complete mystery to me.
I was sure I'd harvested them from either a Poppy, Allium or Aquilegia but it soon became apparent to be none of these. In fact, it looked like i'd actually just grown some weeds.

Chenopodium album
And it would turn out that's exactly what I'd done!
Well, it's apparently "commonly regarded as a weed" and is called Chenopodium album.
