  •  HA, Good luck with ID of DIDD (6+ / 0-)

    I had tomatoes until a couple of days ago. They were not appetizing being covered with leaf-footed stink bugs for a couple of weeks. Also, the grasshoppers were using the bushes to stay warm. I thought, why keep these plants for the insects when I need the space for the winter garden. Yes, a warm fall in our neck of the woods desert this year too.

    Great update on the bird life on the course. I have only the seen hawks solo so I think watching a couple would be interesting.

    •  Az, what will you plant this winter? n/t (3+ / 0-)

        but I'm giving it a try anyway. The lettuces, radishes and onions I let go to seed will do its own thing where it wants to. The garlic has been set. Kale and carrots is a favorite that I need to add. Swiss Chard grows well but I think I'll skip that this year. Mustards, parsley, cilantro, dill, oregano, rosemary, thyme will continue on under covers. Oh, can't forget the strawberries. They are hardy enough to grow under the covers too. By covers, I mean hoops and frost protective covering.

        Do you have a winter garden? If so what are your crops?

          potatoes mature over the winter.  Ms. 6 plants lots of stuff, let me talk to her and I'll develop an accurate list.

          we have garlic planted, among others.
