Weed or Plant that is the question....

Could someone please inform me if this is a weed or in fact a plant. It has tiny little white flowers with a yellow center. Thank you.

    I get it in my garden too.
    I looks lie a member of the solanum family (tomatoes/potatoes/deadly nightshade etc) but that's just a guess, and whilst it is still a plant, it's not one I want, so I remove them.
    I can only guess they arrive courtesy of the birds

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Thank you @cassie.a.stewart & @Pete.8. I thought it looked a bit like a tomato plant.

    Solanum nigrum -  Black Nightshade.

    It’s a relative of tomatoes but definitely don’t eat it’s fruit 🤢
