Bittersweet Nightshade

My neighbor’s grandson asked if he could earn some cash to save up for some new school sneakers.  After washing two cars I had him cutting back some of our bushes and unwanted plants.  He was asking me if these red berries were edible, I told him I doubted it but was curious enough to look them up.  This post a high school group (SOLVE Green Team) wrote where I made my determination that my berries were Bittersweet Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara).  Wiki calls it “an invasive problem weed”.  Good thing we decided against a taste testing.
