Jerusalem Cherry: To keep or to kill?

I got this plant self seeded quite some years ago. I came to learn that is the Jerusalem Cherry. Poisonous berries that look like Jaffas, but a nice looking ornamental plant.

And hardy.

So I threw a couple of berries into a clear garden bed I had but now have a dozen seedlings. That's noxious weed behaviour. Shall I keep them or kill them?

I'll wait a few weeks but I think I'll pull them out.

To a gardener it's sometimes as good to see a dead plant

I have got on top of some creeping periwinkles. Sometimes is just as good to see dead plants as it it to see others thrive.

Can't help but cook for them

As the kids get older and it becomes clearer and clearer that they want (aye need) me to butt out I've found plenty of other things to occupy me. That means I do a lot less cooking, especially given the way menu choices have 8ncreased tge degree of difficulty.

But the combination of a friend giving me a (fmaily sized) fish and some lamb, a message I saw about "Nutella rollups" and a lazy night at home meant that I did a little more cooking tonight.
