    I’d like some help identifying this plant. Sorry if its not a vegie. All the food scraps used to be thrown into this garden so I don’t know what it is haha. I don’t want to embarress myself by guessing.

    Sorry I had to take the photos in the dark my phone wouldn’t let me upload the photos is already taken.

    I’m wondering if they are fruit on potato plants?? Bit of a wild guess though.

    I agree with Blue Wren. A potato plant with seeds.

    All I can definitely say for you is the plant certainly appears to be from the solenaceae family. It’s such a wide and varied group, many of which are toxic. I would suggest digging one up and taking it to a horticultural expert for id just to be sure. 🙂

    Does anyone know if potatos are the only members of the solenaceae family that forms tubers??? If so, that would be an easy way to tell if it’s a potato.
