Ground nut (Apios Americana) in my annual garden

Update: I think I misidentified the shoots as Apios Americana b/c I've been looking out for the shoots where I planted it last year. Now I think it's bindweed, and that I am, in fact, screwed!

*********
Hi there. I planted Apios Americana near my annual garden last spring (rookie mistake??), and this year it has started popping up over 20 ft away in beds I'm intending for things like kale, tomatoes, beans, carrots, etc. And it's in my garlic beds. Am I screwed? OR, might it be a beneficial arrangement? I am feeling like it could have pros and cons but would like to hear others opinions and experience! Thanks!

Hi Kim - I have no idea about your groundnut problem, but I'm pretty new here and a fellow Vermonter (down near Ascutney/Springfield).  So, I thought I'd say hi!

Where did you find your groundnuts last year?

I've been looking for some seed but can't find anything yet.

Thanks

Hi Anne! Nice to “meet” you! I’m up in isle la motte. I’ve been on here a while but I mostly just lurk and read and post when I am looking for info! I should spend more time on here!

To Penny- I got them from
Elmore Roots Nursury in Vermont. They might still have some to order online this year but the are swaaaaamped. I ordered trees a month ago and the order still hasn’t been fulfilled. Check them out- just google their name and you should be able to find them.

Thanks Kim.

I'll check them out.
