    Steer manure was tilled in and some topper raked in before laying the sod.

    Nope, not basil. Some sort of field weed. I thought castor bean from the first pic, but it's so young. It'd be easier to ID with the leaves a bit bigger.

    Not any of the ajugas that I grow here (3 different sorts). Try posting another pic in a couple of days and one of us'll be bound to get it.
