Burcucumber (Sicyos angulatus)
Here is a close up of this pervasive weed vine that starts its growth in late spring. It really goes to town in good growing season weather. I have not noticed it so prolific before. Another sign of global warming as it seems to be in south western Ontario but has not made real inroads to eastern Ontario.
Its quite noticeable along the 401 highway near Toronto.
