You lika' the Kudzu?

"Kudzu is a climbing vine introduced into the United States from Japan in 1876 at the Philadelphia Centennial Expo as a forage crop and ornamental plan. In the early 1950s, US Department of Agriculture encouraged farmers to plant kudzu to reduce soil erosion.

Fast forward a couple of decades later, kudzu is a fast growing weed that has infested about 11,000 square miles of the southeastern United States. It costs around $500 million every year in lost cropland and control costs."

One of the fist things I noticed at 7 years old when I moved to NC. That and red dirt.

It will be, unless we have another depression. So while the rest of the country starves, atlantans will be feasting off kudzu.

I'm sorry, this thread is dedicated to kudzu and kudzu accessories.

Not your ample boobage and your attempts to corrupt me in your skimpy bikinis.
