Please help me identify these three items in my yard

The two plants are weeds that have overtaken areas that I cleared this spring. The other was a small smaller in my garden.

Calvert County Maryland

This looks like a Northern brown snake and is harmless. The plant looks like Perilla frutescens, Beef steak plant. It is invasive in Maryland and an aggressive reseeder. https://www.marylandbiodiversity.com/viewSpecies.php?species=3735 mh
