It's already starting, it seems. In a FB group this fall a couple of different people have spoken of having their gardens cleaned out by two legged thieves. Others told of having some but not all taken , the corn or tomatoes disappearing but not the beans or other veggies. Some said the whole plants were gone. Nobody said anything about winter squash being stolen, not sure if the people were growing any and it was ignored or what.
Nobody said anything about potatoes either, perhaps they're thought to take too long to harvest by a thief.
Perhaps two gardens is a possibility, one clearly a traditional garden and the other a tangled mix of ornamentals, edible weeds and veggies, people looking would perhaps assume the trap garden was the only one.
