i haven't got a clue what these are or how they got there so maybe someone might.i made the mistake of planting a few things a while back without labels but i don't think these are what i planted.they were cauliflowers and cucumbers.i used homemade compost so it could be something from there.if now one can help i suppose i'll just have to let them grow and see what happens. in the firs pic there seems to be a stem with possibly flowers!!

first two pictures are either courgette or cucumbers and the third plant is almost certainly a pepper

I agree with Micheal Courgettes and peppers.

You might be throwing picture A out.....
It looks like a plantain weed to me.



Look closely at the leaf ribbing and the flower spike.

are they risky to have in the greenhouse at all as if they're not then i'll leave them a bit longer to see what happens?

Wait and see if it is a plantain it will not be a problem. Top pic does look like plantain but the second does not.

I'd be like Greengage, I'd give it a week or two more to develop then I whack up another pic and we can pass judgment on it then.
I'd be fairly sure as to my ID........... however I wouldn't stake my house on it.
Time will tell.

I'm with James, the first two look like Plantain (http://www.prairielandherbs.com/plantain.htm). I was only looking at a huge plantain plant in the plot beside my own earlier today, it was huge.

The third is a little too close up to tell. Maybe a pepper.
