Plant grew after veggie garden was tilled. Not prickly. Reminds me a lot of a grape and a cucumber combined. No flowers…..yet. I have no idea what it is. Ants are mining little black bugs all over the plant. Leaves are crumpled due to bugs.

    Yep. Certainly not bindweed! Thanks for reposting. Kinda reminds me of a young grape vine plant.

    Possibly a Confederate Rose.

    Your ‘Florida weave’ is throwing us off.
    I suspect that if the plant was growing along the ground, that it would look like cucumber.

    It kinda smells like a cucumber when cut. But yet it does not look like any variety I have planted before. Also no blooms. I have read that cucumbers do not seed true as they cross pollinate easily. Maybe it’s some strange hybrid.
