The monthly avatar theme for October is fall. You may call it Autumn Very Happy .
Post up your fall harvest, gourds, pumpkins, or even foliage.
HAPPY FALL!

No fall foliage here yet, but I did manage to grow one spaghetti squash, from seeds of a store bought one, and 2 mini yellow pumpkins that came from a cantaloupe seed packet. Rolling Eyes I thought they were the strangest looking cantaloupes I'd ever seen until I cut one open.

So, the spag squash and the little yellow pumpkin are from my first year SFG! What a Face

My blueberry bushes are showing their beautiful Fall colors.


There's zucchini, marigolds, tomatoes, okra, peppers, eggplants and beans ALL hiding in the background.

The fall table top SFG is growing good! I've added some fall flowers and decorations. The gourd is one that I grew from my rare banjo gourds, I have some more still on the vine that are larger, I hope I can make a banjo out of one of them!
The green beans are ready to harvest and the onions are doing great! There is a plant right behind the little scarecrow and it's called a pumpkin on a stick, it has some little green pumpkin shaped things growing on it, I'm not really sure what kind of plant it is, but the plant and blooms sorta look like a eggplant.

That's a gorgeous tree! Love it.
I wanted to use one of my 2 solid red 'autumn blaze' maple trees for my avatar. Couldn't get the lighting right then 15 mph wind knocked off all the leaves. Time to rake and compost.

Looks like I'll have to stick with last months picture , for the garden has not altered very much except for a few leaves on the bush and runner beans becoming holes and browing around the holes as they are at the end of the season.

I got a nasty shock yesterday afternoon ...... hundreds and hundreds of tiny 1/3 inch long cabbage white butterfly caterpillers , trying to much on the brassicas and anything else they fancied.
Judicious use of a pair of scissors saw them consigned to the compost bin on the leaves . I've never ever had cabbage white attack this late in the year , they must have arrived whilst I was away a week ago .

Any survivors still on the plants should hopefully get trashed with tonights first frost minus ( 1 o C / 30 o F ? ) , of the season before they get well & truly established deep into the bigger cabbages where they usually survive living on the plant & its natural antifreeze.
