Someone please help me identify this plant, it was supposed to be cumin, but is clearly something else. If it's not edible or beneficial it's going in the compost or green bin.

There are two of them in the planter with lots of branches near the bottom and a single branch going straight up. There have been no flowers on it, despite having been given lots of flowering food and kelp/seaweed mixes. I live in Northern California, is it possibly something native that blew into my planter?
