Life long Alaskan that needed a change and finding it in Wisconsin.
i would take a sample to the cooperative extension service - or watever it is called in WI. be careful though - i would rubber bag just in case it is poisonous!
Interesting. At first, I thought it might be hazelnuts, but then I googled it and learned that hazelnuts have the furry pods in twos, so that's not what it is. Let us know if you ever find out what it is.
Weird! What a mean lookin' little plant!
Krissy, it's wild cucumber and is not poisonous
Yep, wild cucumber vine. Kinda nasty to control. I like to look at it when it's in my neighbor's yard, if ya know what I mean.http://wisplants.uwsp.edu/scripts/detail.asp?SpCode=ECHLOB
Well this could be a new crop. Ever have any interest in making your own homeopathic medicine? Look at what it is used for at the site that CVPH gave. that is a great web site. You could really become the crazy lady; goats, cats, canning, soap and medicine lady. :)
We have some of that by our house, and recognize it as Cucumber vine. It is a weird plant.
I had no idea what it was. I was afraid it was another one of them scary things that are full of worms or something. Glad to hear it's a beneficial thing.
