Some garden questions

Hello, I have some gardening questions and would appreciate inputs:

1. What types of vegetable plant is in the pic? When i bought it, it was labelled as zucchini but i don't think it is such.

2. When i was planting new grass seed, weeds come up at the same time. What's the best way to handle such weed? use weed b gone and then wait and plant new seeds?

1. Kohlrabi - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kohlrabi

2. If the grass seeds are sprouting too then leave them or pull someone the larger ones by hand. Once the grass has started to establish you can spray if you want, or just see how the weeds do after the first couple of mows. Many of them will be annuals and will die anyway.

kohlrabi is correct, the one on the left is the perfect size. Just take off the leaves and cut off the peel and you can eat it sliced up or use in stirfries. Don't let them get too large because the older varieties can get quite woody.

One of these in pic, definitely not a zucchini!
