The Sacrificial Pumpkins

Well, Halloween again and a few selected pumpkins about to be sacrificed to the children's imaginations....unfortunately assisted by the inherent evil that is Google. 



Ok so, I am a)  blaming this on Google and believe me it could have been worse... b) why did they not like my idea of a pretty pumpkin carriage complete with a fairy tale princess? Oh well those days have gone lol ( actually they never arrived with my two )

Hard to credit that it is November tomorrow and yet daily still reaping the tomatoes. Maybe not quite as sweet as earlier in the summer but still perfect for sauces and casseroles.
 Excuse me squash variant of uncertain provenance - it is nearly November??
 Today I re-tied the grape vines  - honestly I never thought that they would survive let alone thrive like this in one year.


 And finally the hops drying out  - just for seeds next year. I have a plan to thicken out some of the hedgerows, it would make a great windbreak.
