Edible or Poisonous?

(Question)

Hello there – I’ve found these potential grapes/leaves growing in my backyard where I live in southeast Michigan. We’ve just moved here so I’m not sure if they were planted and intentional or if they are wild. They are growing along my fence which has zero shade hours during daytime. All leaves have toothed edges, tendrils are forked, and seeds (though unripe?) have two or more seeds. Might you know if these are edible? I realize if so, they’d be better eaten/used in the fall, but I would love to use the leaves now if I can. Thanks so much for your help!
