    Cucumber? I often see three or more leaf shapes on a cucumber plant.

    Not sure about cucumber. Doesn’t have that hairy texture like a cucumber. Looks more like a morning glory. The heart shaped leaves are most common, but for the wild plants, I have seen varied leaf shapes.

    I’ll be leaning with roypaul on this one. He is certainly correct on the hairy texture of cucumber. I’ve often been warned that eating too much crow can hurt your eyes! Morning glory looks good for the ID as well. Nice blooms should be coming soon!

    This looks much like a weed that is growing here. Some farmers call it a potato weed, because it looks like a sweet potato plant. I think it may be a bindweed or wild buckwheat vine. It has clusters of white fuzzy looking blooms. Not sure but it could be the same.

    I was leaning towards Kudzu ?
    It can have the diff leaf shapes also. Need picture from afar to see if it is covering a car or house… 🙂

    Ivy leaved morning glory, (Ipomoea hederacea)

    This plant is a bit too successful for my tastes… While pretty, it’s too seedy to grow in the garden… looks good in the weeds, though.
