SOLVED: Is this a weed or a plant?

Oxford, United Kingdom

I have this in my flower bed, and I'm not sure if I should pull it up or not.

At first I was hoping it was a cerinthe, but I can see it's definitely not that now.

Looks like Chinopodium aka lamb's quarters. Some eat it while most weed it. Confirm before tasting.

Thank you very much, I looked it up and it looks exactly like that.

I'd heard of lamb's quarters but never seen it. Amazing how it pops up out of nowhere.

We gifted you with lambs quarters and grey squirrels. So sorry. Lambs quarters are easier to control than gray squirrels.

ha! I have a very active, cheeky grey squirrel who loves to take out the fat balls for the birds from the feeder, and bury them in the lawn and flower beds (for later). He also came in the kitchen to investigate the other day. Extremely cheeky.
