I've been struggling to figure out what a few young things are, including this. Thanks.

It's difficult to tell for certain from that photograph and at that young a stage of growth, but the plants nearest the center of your photograph may possibly be mulberry (either Morus alba or Morus rubra).

A more conclusive assessment can be made by bringing a sample (an entire plant or, at least, a leaf and a good section of stem) to your local cooperative extension for identification. Here is the contact information for the Richmond office:
