Britt's late grandmother loved to garden, and she propagated many of this particular variety of vine, one of which made it from Georgia here with us to Mississippi.
Like many vines, it grows incredibly quickly and comes back year after year.
It's also incredibly easy to "share"! As it grows, all along the vine will appear these tiny, spiny pods....
...that will grow into very large pods!
After 4-5 months, the vine will be simply filled with them.
These can be stored in a cool, dark, dry place until the spring planting. The "pods" sprout when halfway submerged in water and placed in a warm sunny location.
Think how many vines I can have in the spring!
