This episode of "The Victory Garden" opens with host Roger Swain protecting the Suburban Garden's young trees from hungry voles by covering their trunks with plastic or mesh hardwire tree guards. Lucinda Mays travels to the central region of Chile to visit a private garden. She meets with Juan Grimm, the garden's landscape architect to tour the grounds. Swain readies the Victory pond for winter by removing the pump from the pond. Swain prepares his root vegetables for the hard freeze. He uses a galvanized trash bucket buried in the ground and places layers of carrots and damp sand inside to keep the vegetables fresh during the winter. Chef Marian Morash makes pumpkin fiesta soup.
