I have a vine climbing on my fence. It has leaves in clusters of 5 and it grows small dark berries. I can't figure out what it is or if it's edible or not. Anyone know what this is?

Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) perhaps?

I agree

And, for what it's worth, you probably shouldn't eat the berries, although they are beloved by birds.

There are just a few people who are sensitive to the plant sap; handle with gloves.

I agree, that's "Virginia Creeper Vine" which as you can see by some of the photo's in the database gets beautiful color in the fall!
