Two days ago, I was able to go out and take some more photos of the surrounding area. I happened across this barn which was partially covered by Kudzu. It may look pretty, but in reality it is actually a very dangerous weed.
As you can see, the Kudzu had already completely covered this field, and will soon cover the entire barn.
It looks like encouraging farmers to plant it from 1935 through the early 1950s backfired, big time.
