October is a Good Month


This is a pumpkin from my garden. It’s one of the best I’ve grown.

October is a great and odd time of year in California. It is a time when some of the trees drop their leaves as is traditional in the Fall, but others are just getting geared up to produce their crops. It’s a time to harvest everything thats been growing all summer, or clear out the old plants, but it is also the time to plant and nurish the second round of crops for the year.

The weather is hot, then cold. The daylight is fading, but the skies are ablaze with light. Oktoberfest is a good celebration for this area, and I understand why it is so popular. Enjoy the beer and pumpkins everyone, because this is a special time of year around here.
