Kudzu? Can Do!

Interesting article from National Geographic about a woman in Appalachia who makes products out of kudzu (Pueraria montana). Nancy Basket makes paper, candies, and, of course, baskets from the invasive vine. Be sure to click on the article link so you can see the photo of her artist's studio, which is insulated with bales of kudzu.

Thanks to Val C. for sending in a link to the article.
