What is This Plant/s in the Persimmon Pot

#1 mystery
 
#2 mystery
plant in question is bottom right,
growing in another persimmon tree pot.
 
 
#3 Is this plantain?
It lies very flat when it grows in every path in the yard. However, it grows multiple layers of leaves if it is over near an untrod place. And, it stands more upright. The one above is very flat. This withstands walking on every day. I can supply more pictures if you like.

This is going to be so embarrassing if the first two are useless weeds. However, I need to know the truth even if it turns out I have been nurturing something noxious.
 
Thank you!

  1. I don't know about #1 and #2, but #3 looks like plantain. To be sure wait and see if it sends up shoots covered in seeds from the center of the plant.

    1. Sue,
      It does, all the time. But, I suppose I just trample them off. Maybe I will dig it up and put it elsewhere. Thanks.

    2. I thought all along it was a tomato, but no blossoms threw me off.

    1. Stacy,
      Thanks! Eggplant? I have never grown that, so I would have never guessed.

  4. I agree, #2 tomato- give it time for blossoms, and #3 is plantain.
