Notes:

I am not sure what this plant is. It came up about 3 weeks ago and is in a part of the yard where we have not planted anything. Not sure if birds may have dropped it or not. Looks like it is going to begin growing outward from the main plant now, as it is steadily wrapping around anything in it’s way. It has a stronger onion-like scent . From what I have read, if it has an onion smell then it should be edible, so maybe it will produce something that is edible… hopefully before frost happens
