I opened my gardening season - starting on the window sill. I tried to put aside my anger about the destruction at Nineveh, and now I have a window sill full of plastic containers. I sowed broccoli, garlic chives, turnip greens, celery, parsley, dill, kohlrabi and thyme. Tomorrow I'll shop for new outside containers.
In Concord California, my last house had ivy over the front. I noticed it took paint off the windowsills when removed, and also took little chunks of brick off. I didn't get rid of it because of that, and also I liked eating the snails that populated it.
I have areas overrun with English ivy too. I try to keep it contained, and I don't mind the look of it either. I'm hoping it will eventually take down a couple of ugly alder trees.
Ivy (of some sort) has taken over my yard. It grows up trees, my porch, everywhere. I hate spraying week killer, so what are you gonna do? At least I don't have to mow it--and it's green!
If kudzu were not so invasive, it would certainly provide mulch. Sad. but no one wants to let it get started. The same with Virginia Creeper. I bought some compost several years ago to use in my south garden and I have to do a daily tour and pull out the new growth. I hope I got it all last year.
I wonder if goats will eat it. Would their digestive process kill the starts? It would be great to have goats and kudzu live in an erosion gully and have all that fertilizer. Do you think that would work? If so, just think of how nice it would be to recover all those eroded pieces of ground.

I don't know how true it is, but this site says that the legality of taking plants across state lines depends on the state and should be researched before doing it:
I've found it difficult to find good information. I've been unable to find anything governing private individuals mailing a plant to Idaho. Most articles just talked about the strict laws concerning marijuana, even though I didn't use that word in my searches.
