Chenopodium rubrum

This is an occasional plant which grows on waste dumps and is often associated with manure or large composting heaps near farms. It can turn reddish in fruit hence the name but this one was very young.

C. rubrum is common in England but records are fewer in Wales and infrequent in Scotland and Ireland,
