Notes:

This thorny little guy looks like some sort of solanum, but I’m unsure which. They grow wild in the yard in Cobb County and produce dark and light green berries. Squirrels or something gets to them before they’re ripe. They don’t get much higher than a foot to 18 inches tall, if I recall correctly, and the flowers are yellow (but it’s been a year, so maybe I don’t recall the details).
