Notes:

This vine grows really fast, it has pretty small purple flowers. The stems are slightly sticky. In the fall it gets bean looking pods which has the seeds for the next year. Anyone know the name of this?

    Harvest the ripe beans (pods will be brown when seeds are ready) and store in cool dry place for planting next spring.

    This looks like a Hyacinth Bean Vine. The pods are filled with more seeds – let them dry and you can collect them for planting in the Spring.
