Notes:

Does anyone have any idea what this vine is? It’s looks like a bean or pea pod growing on a vine intertwined in the bushes next to a river.

    You have Groundnut or Apios americana. This is a native vine…has beautiful burgundy flowers in summer.

    Tubers and beans were an important food source for native Americans and early settlers.
