Well, it looks like most of the things I planted are still alive. The sweet potato and tomato vines are not as lucky.
The sweet potatoes went from chartreuse to black just about overnight. I did find one tuber from one I had dug up last weekend to put in a coreopsis. Maybe there are a few others under the dead foliage that I can dig up and just start them indoors next year, rather than searching for them at the nurseries.
I do so like how they fill in spaces and provide brightness in a bed that is lacking it. I could also think about putting in chartreuse coral bells so as to provide that brightness in a perennial form.
