Autumn bounty

October harvest from our garden; the remains of summer.


  1. You are making me hungry. The gardens are all but gone here. There is a freeze forecast for Monday night.

    An Arkie's Musings

  2. What a good feeling to harvest your own vegetables. Beautiful they are.
    Is that the flower still on the squash?
    In Switzerland 2002-3 as a volunteer, I remember the joy of seeing the completion of a whole year's cycle in the organic garden, of actually doinging it all for the first time in my life. "Putting food on the table" for others took on a whole new meaning. What a great system Nature has.

  3. Too right.
    I am pretty disgusted by the whole Halloween thing but the Irish grasp all things US with relish.
    As a pagan I used to observe Samhain which is more spiritual.
    Your Autumn Bounty is more to the point.

  4. You've got more from your garden then we have . 2008 seems to be crop failure year ..

    Will try harder next year .

  5. Hi MKiwi! It looks a great garden!
    The tree is awesome, but it's amazing how the street looks so different; closed for winter... ;(
    Does it mean that the money they make with tourists in Summer is enough for them to live the whole year? ;))
    Meanwhile Blogtrotter just said goodbye to Mykonos 2007!! It shows the famous sunset scene at Little Venice, and the Pelican mascot of the island… ;)
    Hope you enjoy, comment and have a great weekend!

  7. Hey, my husband just did the same thing the other day. Our haul was one mishapen pumpkin, about 8 mini-eggplants a few zucchini flowers a handful of very green tomatoes and one microscopic green pepper like the one in your photo...but much smaller!
