I can't see where the stems attach to the leaves, but if there is a little sheath there, it is in the buckwheat family (see the picture of an "ocrea" halfway down http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polygonaceae ). Most of those are generally considered weeds (although you need to make the final decision for yourself).
But at least in my garden (Washington, DC) there are other volunteer plants which look like that, including Pokeweed and probably others.
If you are in the UK, as you email address would seem to imply, my experience here is perhaps even less likely to help you.
Until it flowers, it might be pretty hard to identify.

Jim:
I'm going to be in DC on Sept. 15-20. Can I pick your brain some? It's my first trip. (I'm going to meet with Senators about the Farm Bill. It's a National Farmers Union trip.)
Anyway, I want to know about Farmers Markets, the US Botanical Garden and anything else that I can't miss. (I'm arriving a day ahead of time and leaving a day later than everyone else in my organization, so I can be a tourista. It's only fair, since my state is *full* of tourists right now.)
Suggestions?
