I've got a few plants I need an id on. They're growing wild on my property and look edible. The first three are the same plants as are the next two. I believe the first are tomatillo and last is blackberry but would like a confirmation. No idea what the bean looking one is.

The first three pictures are of Carolina Horse Nettle (Horse Nettle (Solanum carolinense)), which is most definitely not edible.

The 2nd looks like Vicia sativa.
Common Vetch (Vicia sativa)

Do you remember seeing tiny pinkish purple flowers?

If that's what it is, the entry is missing pics of the seed pods. Maybe you could add one?

FWIW, if one lets these make seeds, then mow, it sounds like you're mowing BB's!

They had yellowish purple flowers. The pods are in both pics although they are bad cell pics. One plants has black pods and the other green.

Absolutely, you may have one of the other species, there are many Vicias.

I didn't find any with yellowish purple flowers. A pic of the flower could help find the species if nobody who knows comes by this discussion. I believe your pics with pods show the pods in various stages of development, that the green ones will turn dark, going by the fact that ripe seed pods are rarely still green, and the black ones I've seen started out green.
