OK guys & gals what will we have for the October avatar ?

 I have some real nice butternut squashes turning golden
 most of the remaining tomato plants in the glasshouse have golden leaves and delicious fruits.

  So I offer " Golden October in the garden " in all it's various guises .

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 .
