Still a little beauty to be had at the end of the year.

"Zebrina" mallow. They not only survive the first couple frosts, the flowers darken to a deeper purple. Some of the last bee food; and with nearly everything else dead or dying, the deer really enjoy them.

Finished shelling out this year's "Painted Mountain" corn:

Wild? I have to baby a potted one so. Do you eat the fruit?
I never have, it grows in the fence rows and raccoons get ‘em first. But I’m going to grow some vines on purpose, just got to figure out where. Maybe I’ll be able to harvest some of the Maypop fruit. The vine I have is growing in a tangled mess on a fence.

I guess that is the other side of them not being hardy for me.
