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.
