I.D. this Weed

This weed looked interesting to me so I let it grow in my lettuce bed. It looks kind of elegant trimmed up, with the seed pods, so I wonder if it has a cultural use. Any idea what it is?

The plant is about 4 feet tall and grows in small stands by the roadside. Its widely spaced leaves grow bigger than saucers but smaller than dinner plates. The flowers open up into some modest yellow cups.
Thanks friends.
