Anyone know what this is?

    Looks like a second plant mixed in,

    the seed heads look very much like some Amaranthus to me,

    there are garden varieties and weedy ones, and if I remember correctly they hybridize freely, they would love freshly disturbed soil (which is watered sometimes?)

    a picture of foliage and the whole plant would help

    If you click to enlarge you'll see they're attached to the leaves and they aren't seed heads. They're flowers and spent flowers of something in Lamiaceae. I asked for leaf and habit pix on the OS duplicate thread. I hope they're on their way.

    Here are more pix. And yes, there's another plant in there (licorice mint leaf) which you can ignore. ;-)
