My first thought leads me to believe it is horseradish.....dig a little up to see if it has a large white tap root.....

It looks to me like "eryngium tripartitum" common name sea holly. Or a similar type. When I moved into this house some came up and it took me quite a while to find out what it was. It is nice greenery early in the season, but it grows up these stalks of flowers that look to me like thistles. I don't like the flowers, but then I'm not really a blue fan. Many people love them, though.
