Helicopters from trees

Okay you green thumbs out there-here’s a weird one.  So I was checking on my potted and growing herbs and noticed a new, maroon-colored leaf sprouting out of one pot.  I thought, “oh, that must be my eggplant!”  But then I saw the same sprout in every other pot I had an in the ground.  Upon closer look, I saw a few of those helicopters that had fallen from the tree above, had landed in the pots or ground and started to stand upright in the ground with the seed as the base.  The sprouts are coming out of the seeds of these helicopters.  I pulled them out, assuming they will turn into weeds, but I really don’t know.  What the heck will these grow into?  They’re taking over my backyard!
