I don't think it is poison ivy, but may be nightshade, judging from the description. Do you have a picture you can send so that we can positively identify it?

Q. Getting Rid of Bittersweet Nightshade

I have an over abundance of Bittersweet Nightshade in my yard. We’ve had a very wet, cool summer here in CT and the weed seems to love the weather. I’ve been pulling it out all summer long without any luck in getting rid of the plant. So far I haven’t put any chemicals down because of environmental and pet concerns.

Q. Vegetable-What Is It

I have 3-4 foot plant (looks like a pepper plant) that I don’t recall planting in my garden and don’t know what it is. It has very small white flowers and numerous groupings of 7 to 10 , what looks like, green berries (but they are not) turning to deep purple but not getting much bigger. They have seeds in the middle. They are each about 1/3 inches in diameter.

Look up nightshade under google images. I believe the berries will turn red. Mildly toxic and possibly hallucigenic. Birds eat the berries and spread as they fly. Let us know!
