Great idea David. Unfortunately I don't have anything golden in my garden to share this year. But I will join in by using a golden pic to wish y'all a happy fall! Can't wait to see everyone's golden harvests!!!

Great Idea!  I can choose between a Dakota Gold tomato (if it warms up enough for a few more to ripen) or use a pic of the lonely, forgotten cuke!

We have the same delightful problem with all the flowers in MM beds , some of the  gladioli reached a shade under 5 feet tall this year .

All I have in gold for veggies is this last butternut squash climbing up the rhododendron hedge:



Once my corn is finished I'll post a photo of that instead, worms and all. Rolling Eyes

My marigolds did the same thing! They weren't in MM but they turned into big bushes.

Triple threat:  Mel's Mix Marigolds.  Photo does not do them justice.  They are the envy of the neighbors!!
