Name that Weed - Curly Dock or sour dock

Okay, folks, here's the next unidentified weed in my yard. Help me out please!

The red one is the same plant, just more mature.

Any ideas?

I never knew the real name of that plant but when I was a kid we always called it "coffee plant". We used the dry seeds to make pretend coffee. We never drank it but it sure reminded me of coffee grounds.

Glad to see a fellow Iowa on this board.
