Thunbergia gregorii

Believe it or not, somewhere under that monster Thunbergia gregorii is a 10′ x 20′ x 8′ chain link enclosure designed to keep the ducks safe from coyotes at night.

10 years ago I planted two one gallon pots holding vines that might have been 1 foot tall at the time. I never water these things and yet they’ve grow like swamp monsters, up and around the cage to swallow every portion entirely. If it weren’t for frequent hacking around the doorway, I’m pretty sure it would have sealed it shut a long time ago.

Sage Osterfeld
I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
