Interloper in my beet bed

I have a 8'X4' daised bedd for beets and this thing popped up a few weeks ago. I left it to see what happened, now it has little fruits on it. anyone know what it is? Btw, Beets are the first and only thing planted in that bed.
Thank you.
On another more excitng note, I've picked my first two Zucchini (black beauty) and 2 yellow squash. :-)

Re: Interloper in my beet bed

I'm not sure what I'm looking at Wolf. Do you have more pictures of the invader? Is it the little stem with the fruit buds on it? Do you have a picture of it's leaves maybe? Just the bundle looks like a little bunch of grape tomatoes, but really without a better view of the plant it could be anything at this point. :?

Ah, now that would make sense why it kind of resembles a tomato, but not quite. Nightshade is related to tomatoes, and I can see it from the picture of it further back. I'm glad somebody had an answer for you, on facebook. :D

Yes, I think it is a nightshade.
