It's a worry when you find nightshade berries in your frozen peas. It doesn't appear that Talleys took it too seriously at first, but they sure are investigating now.
"National Poisons Centre spokesman Leo Schep said the black nightshade berries did not kill but were dangerous in large quantities and could cause fever, nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting and abdominal pain."
Not good, that's why gardening and growing our own veges is the best way to go. Community gardens bring people together and save money. The "Growing Organic" regular feature, just added to Te Karaka, is timely and just what we need. Also great to see the photos of Hapuku School's vege gardens in the "More than Te Reo" article.
