I concur. I'd also like to add that it's good to flog your brassicas this time of year. I have mustard, kale, and collards that have gone to seed and I cut a branch full of seed pods and use it to flog the ground where I want them to come up next fall.

I already have my kiwi vines tied to some fence posts; just wait til I fashion some nice whips out of kudzu vines.
