Mikey, it's definitely in the mustard family, as is the daikon, broccoli, kale, kohlrabi, cabbage, brussel sprouts, rutabaga, turnip, mustard greens, bok choi, and arugula. Did you plant any of those near there? It looks most like Kale to me.It could also be the the wild mustard greens that I found when I was there, but I seem to remember those had glossy leaves, not matte like these.
looks like collards
Yep, I bet you've got collards. Kale leaves are kinda crinkly on the ends and are a darker green. Collards have a bit of a blue tinge to them like what you've got there. Or could very well be a broccoli. The one on the left has what looks like a flower head on it. The leaves on broccoli also have the same shape and color as collards since as Nat mentioned they are in the same family.
Really? I think they look like beets, but I'm not gonna argue with Nat!
i think you guys got it right on collards. and as msfullroller said it's got a blue tint. it seems mature and there's no fruit being produced so that too leads me towards a green. so i guess I saute them with some garlic? you dont eat these raw do you?
