Wild Cucumber

I guess my powers of observation have failed me all these years, as until the other day, I had never heard of Wild Cucumber, much less seen one.  I noticed seed pods and vines of the Wild Cucumber (Echinocystis lobata) plant strewn all over the place at Rose Lake the other day.  According to MSU, 2013 was a very good year for the plant, which appears to be native to Michigan.
