In your area, they are treated as an annual. They will not survive a frost. You may either bring them indoors, or let them die off outside. It is always best to assume that deer and rabbits will eat your crops. There are things they should not eat, that I have witnessed them destroy. And ,lastly, they will grow about 10 feet tall!
