What are these plants?

Asked July 22, 2020, 12:13 AM EDT

The first is in my vegetable garden so it may be a vegetable I forgot planting. The other one is in a flower bed but I think it might be a weed.

We think this looks like it may be an eggplant. Do you remember planting it? https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/eggplant

I did plant an eggplant but I thought this was it. Now I don't know what this is!

Hi - This looks like Jimsonweed (Datura stramonium).

You can dig it out and discard it, ideally before it develops and disperses seeds.
