Are these weeds

HI, I have just started gardening and im a complete novice but im enjoying it.
I have quite a big garden so i have planted some vegetables. I dug the garden over and planted the veg which are coming through nice but i have i think, weeds coming through. I just need to know if they are weeds, are they treatable without killing my veg, or is it best to dig them out.
I hope you can see the photo of them [image:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good question. If you dig them out better be very careful of root disruption of desired plants.

Can't tell for sure. Is there any way you can take a much closer photo's and see if there are any flowers under the foliage and snapshot one?

It's a bit hard to tell if there is anything in the pic other than things that look like weeds, but it's often hard to tell from pics. But if you can tell a difference in looks between things like veg and other things (by being able to see a row of the veg, for example) then I'd say you do have weeds.
You don't mention of you put veg into a newly created bed or prepared the bed fresh??? But either way, if the bed has been fallow for some time, it would be reasonable to expect weed to be coming up if it hasn't been a productive and freuently used bed for some time. If it's a new bed, then I'd bet pounds to peanuts that they would be weeds.
I find the best way to get out tiny weeds is to just get down there and use a finger and thumb to pull then out gently when the soil is moist. After you've weeded, try to water your veg with some dilute seaweed emulsion as it seems to help plants recover from root disturbance. If you don't have any then jsut water then gently. Good luck.

Recall seeing similar in SE VA where I lived while in Navy. If they are same plant, its simply groundcover weed. Very delicate weed, easy to pull up when ground is moist. But, prolific as well.

Those look like cotyledons [the leaves put out by seeds before the first true leaves develop] which makes it difficult to say what the plants are. If you are sure they are not your planted seeds, they are easily weeded out.
