What is this peculiar plant I found in my garden? It has a very ragged appearance. This one is approximately 3 feet tall. Thanks

Thought at first it was one of the sow thistles, but the leaves are wrong for that. Replying to see the answers.

Bolted radishes?

Don't think so Darren. I don't eat radishes. thanks

I would have said that it was a sewan - local dialect for a sow thistle. Does it have a square stem with a white sap when damaged? Generally considered to be a field weed.

Definitely a weed. Pull it out and bin it before it seeds all over.

it looks like common sowthistle [Sonchus oleraceus] as it isn't spiny leaved. it is certainly classed as a weed or Native wildflower.
