Ooo, I wish we had pretty trees. Our oaks just go from flat green to flat brown, but they make terrific mulch. Cool Please share again when this one is at its peak of color.

Ooo, that looks like a rhinoceros beetle. We used to wear them as jewelry when we were kids. We'd tie a little yarn "leash" around their middles and tie them to pins on our sweaters. (Never for very long -- we always let them go unharmed.) Your beans are gorgeous. They look like polished pebbles. Cool

Can we get the scrolly banner up top updated for November? Very Happy

Yup, I think it's supposed to a be a rhinoceros beetle. The plastic ones don't need leashes. cutesie

The beans are hard to eat because they are so nice to look at. The colors tend to darken as the beans dry. The purple ones are bubble-gum pink when fresh, and the black ones are purple. For Snow Cap the darkening increases the contrast, but for others, the subtle pattern is lost -- it's hard to see dark on darker. I should post close-ups of some of them... but I have a big garden to-do list that should come first.

Updated my Avatar with a photo of this year's Fall colours in Gatineau Park in the Province of Quebec. The other photos were taken at or near Champlain Lookout in Gatineau Park.  Our house is about five miles past the Ottawa River that can be seen in the distance in some of the photos.

My first Delicata.  I have eaten 2.  They are AMAZING!!!!  Had 2 plants.  Want more, or need to push production, didn’t really tend them.

Beautiful, SR!  Our Delicata did not set any fruit this year, and don't know why. They had lots of blooms, both male & female, but not a one of them set fruit. I know it was not a pollination problem, since all of the other summer & winter squash heavily produced.

Interesting that you say that, OG!  Because I had planted the same seeds the previous season.  Zero germination, re-seeded, just ZERO!!  This year, I had 2 container plants,, all good!
