Hello, I see these plants growing in my yard and I wonder if anyone can please help me identify them, perhaps let me know if they are edible as well.

I will note that even if someone gives me a positive identification that something is edible, I will double check, so you will bear no responsibility if I do get an upset tummy from eating something!

I see this small bush in a lot of different places.

Small bush/shrub - had several of these berries on it in late summer.

Hello amjad welcome to the forum. It would greatly improve the chances of an ID if you put your location in your profile.

Sorry, I just created a bare bones profile. I have updated my profile. I'm in London, Ontario, Canada and by the way this whole forum, this whole community has me so excited. I am entirely grateful to all of the contributors.

hi amjad, i JUST pulled out a bunch of these weird berries yesterday. they are NOT edible. they are solanum / night owls. they are technically considered vegetables somewhere in the world but here in europe we learn in school that they re poisonous. im sure you can read up some stuff online. but do not eat them.

my guesses :

#1 - bitter nightshade


#2 - black currant - Ribes nigrum


#3 - wild grape - maybe something like a fox grape- or river grape - or maybe a cultivar variety...

Wow, thank you all. I will do a bit of due diligence on my part to confirm those, but again from the bottom of my heart, thanks. The expertise we have communally is invaluable.
