[NAFEX] Weed identification

I'm at a loss then. I don't think they are huckleberries, though I'm not very familiar with that fruit. It is possible that there was a mix up with the seed packaging and you got something else instead. It happens sometimes. I once bought strawberry seed that turned out to be asparagus.

I looked those up, and it’s not either,
but close – the leaves are only about 1.5-2 inches wide, have ridges, but are
not very stiff, a dark green.  Clumps of 5-6 leaves coming up from the root. 
Right now, they are about 10 inches high.  I’m going to try to get better
pictures – the lighting wasn’t very good.  It’s just that they came up exactly
where I seeded in a mass – and then some other places later.  I will say, I
just brought in a good truckbed of mushroom compost at that time.

It's hard to tell from the photo because I can't get a sense of scale,
but if you used compost from a municipal source, it could be cast iron plant or
mother in law's tongue. They have a bad habit of springing up from compost.
Either way, I'd pull it. If it is a plantain, it could be good to eat, but
without a positive ID, I wouldn't try it.

Looks like a species of Plantago (Plantain).

Please identify?  I planted garden huckleberries – but this is what came
up – I don’t know if it’s a weed, or what – I don’t see it anywhere else – but
this year it has cropped up in two of my gardens, and I’m not sure whether to
just pull it.  I don’t think it’s a huckleberry – but it doesn’t look like
a weed, either…see the link below.

I've observed the same thing. I've never seen deer do more than taste a
persimmon leaf, then leave the tree alone. My impression is that the foliage
contains the same sorts of astringent compounds that make the unripe fruit so
unpleasant.

Do deer eat persimmon trees?  I've got about 6 real nice small
trees.  We have heavy deer pressure.  To my surprise, it appears they
have not touched the leaves on the sprouts, which are about 4 feet tall. 
I know they love the fruit.  But it appears, from my experience, that they
do not like the leaves.  Is that true?  Jerry in southern Indiana
