    Thanks, Annette! I knew someone here would know. You guys are a wealth of knowledge! He did say it was from Cuba. I think it will make a pretty houseplant and I'm sure I'll use some from time to time for cooking. I will look it up and see if it is the kind that has medicinal value too.

    I grow the variegated Cuban oregano. It is great fresh or dehydrated. I cut some off each fall and grow it in water all winter then repot in spring. Can't handle below 40 outside. Combination of basil, oregano and thyme great to cook with.

    The kids and I dug the sweet potatoes today. I planted these in July and that actually worked out better because they came out a more useful size, although there were a couple whoppers in there.

    The deer have figured out that they can jump the electric fence, but it doesn't matter much now that everything is finishing up. There are lots more peppers out there, but they don't bother those. They did mow down all the foliage on the sweet potatoes, but I managed to get one last picking of the greens while I could.

    Monday the trees behind my house was filled with buzzards. I hope it was the deer that eats my fruit trees

    Harvesting the sweet spuds is on the list for Friday. I am so pleased with the results so far.

    Goodbye, Summer! I don't feel as if I got to enjoy you as much as I wanted to. I'm so going to miss this. Frost is somewhere just around the corner. Perhaps we'll get another week or two before all my lovelies are gone away. :hit

    I forget the name of this one...
