 American beauty berry plants growing along the drive to the shed.  They are really loaded, in the fall when the leaves drop the berries turn deep metallic purple.  They are supposed to be edible, even found a recipe for jelly and wine.  We'll see how they taste. 8/10/09

 

This is a "weed" that keeps coming up all over the place.  The little hanging "lanterns" turn brown and when you open them up there is this little berry (second picture) that is orange to red.  It tastes and smells like a tomato, only sweeter.  If anyone knows what they are, please email me, john@thebrassdragon.com. 8/10/09
