I ate one sweet potato last night, and it seemed just fine. I think the frozen vine thing is a myth. I should google it. After I dig them all up, I'll put the garden to rest. Brocolli and chard may survive 'til T-giving.

Glad I don't have deer trouble like you two, Joan and Daniel. Just voles, rabbits, moles, and 'coons. That's enough!

I have salad making things we harvest every day for our evening meal, and await the development of beets, tomatoes, squash, and beans. Early next spring I will start some vegetables, fruits, and long season plants to be transplanted into the raised beds in the meadow to the west of my bedroom window. Sometime between now and next spring I will have a deer fence built. Travis does all the heavy stuff I can't do. 

The Western Larch just began their transformation from green to yellow. There is one I can see out my western window and a whole grove of them I see out my north window. STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL!

Just outside my west window grows a red fir in which I placed bird feeders and water. Watching the blue jays, woodpeckers, chickadees feed and scratch the soil under the tree offers great moments of quiet observation.

Randy, what a loss!
I would test those sweet potatoes - msybe they will be ok.
Deer have been eating snything in my garden that I forget to protect with chicken wire. Things they left slone earlier are now getting eaten too. I think its the time of year to let go....when frost kills the annuals here, it will be my message to clean up the flower beds. I have a few peppers and tomatoes, enough for meals now and then.

Oh, I'm so saddened. We had a very hard freeze while I was gone to California. Before I left, they said "light frost possible". I didn't have any chance to protect my sensitive garden plants. Consequently, I lost all my tomatoes and peppers. Worse yet, my sweet potato vines are black. They say it affects the actual potatoes. I've never tested that threat, but I'm about to! We just need a rain to soften the ground so I can dig them up.

Welcome Andrea.  It's nice to have another gardener here.

Sndrea, welcome! What are you growing in your garden?
Comment by Daniel W on October 12, 2015 at 9:42pm
Kathy I will have to work on that. We have plenty of deer, but they don't seem to have any interest in eating children.

Daniel, l love that solution.

Do you know where a person could find a bear?
Comment by Idaho Spud on October 12, 2015 at 2:44pm

LOL Daniel!

Comment by Daniel W on October 12, 2015 at 2:38pm
Spud, I think if you can arrange for grizzly bears to carry off those little felons-in-the-making, it would be a warning to other potential little deviants,
