I may have found a patch where some twisties are growing, have to go back and look more thoroughly. On the off chance I find some(knock,knock)when is a good time to remove the vine? Before seasoning, after or doesn't really matter?
I've found sooner can be better, but not definitively. It can harbor bugs and rot the wood if it is decomposing. Sometimes the damage is already done just by pressure. I guess the question becomes, what purpose would leaving it on be?
We've got plenty of vines around here, the problem is that they grow too fast and just choke out whatever they grow on. I'll see a sapling that needs to grow a bit and when I go back in a few months it's dead and vine moved on.
