Square stem? Any thorns? Send runners out?

Looks to be a species of pig weed. Any dairies near by?

I would agree with the pigweed, or perhaps stinging nettle? Is the stem really brittle? (stinging nettle) Or maybe tough to pull out of the ground? (pigweed)

Not sure of the name. But we have LOTS of it in our gardens, flower beds and yard. Pulls up easily, but spreads FAST. Try to get ahead of it.
