This months theme should be appropriate for this time of year - harvest time. So anything that conjours up then please get snapping. It really can be anything, wild food, allotment food, a family dinner, seriously anything with a harvest theme.

Although we really won't be able to tell please try and keep it to photos taken from now-ish onwards.

Post pictures below - will have to be Digital images or scanned in ones same rules as before apply -

The Photo is to be taken this month.
One photo per entrant.
If the photo is of a person, then they must give their permission for it to be on the site. It is a public forum, and we do have to be careful about people being offended by their picture being in public view.
The photo must have been taken by you*
Please remember to keep your photos to a reasonable size - use photo resizing or host on photobucket/flickr etc to help with any resizing issues.

* If you wish to have yourself in a photo then it must be either taken using a timer or if taken by someone else they must become a member in order to post it.

Competition is open to anyone who wishes to enter and the prize is a signed copy of "How green are my Wellies" By Anna Shepherd.

This book is priced at £14.99 and I will be spending about a fiver posting so its not a bad prize at all. In fact I have a sneaky read and quite like this book. - Anna is also a friend of the site so if you win could you write a little review for us, much appreciated in advance.

Most of all enjoy yourself when taking snaps and get outside and enjoy the .... well er rain!

bad luck, our harvest was at the end of August, so even with a working camera there is not much to take a picture of LoL :flower:

(thinking cap is on, I am sure I can come up with something :wink: )

This is our September 5th harvest:

And here's a link to the September 9th harvest (just for fun, not for the contest). http://www.flickr.com/photos/lynda_2008 ... otostream/


We have something to harvest every day but I don't usually take photos of them. With the weird weather this year we are getting asparagus in September, so we had to get a photo of that for the family album!

Millymollymandy, those are Chinese red noodle beans. The beans are great, but the plants are also very strong, very productive and the flowers are beautiful with a wonderful fragrance. More photos of the beans and flowers here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lynda_2008 ... 499361282/

A good US source for the seed is Kitazawa seed company.

I was thinking that this competition might unfairly Bias to those in the Northern Hemisphere, then I thought well you lot are an imaginative bunch. There are things like a harvest moon and sythes that are not so harvest specific. Impressed so far you lot, nice one!

Bah humbug I can't show this picture right, I've reduced it by half, upload it as an attachment and it goes blurred or I upload it to the internet and copy it and it comes out as a small piccy..... :(

Anyway this is a selection of what is cluttering up my house at the moment :lol: and a lot of it was harvested yesterday! Click on the attachment to see it better.

As I couldn't take a photo of our own harvest I've copped out and taken a photo of someone else harvesting, taken from our bedroom window. I do love living here :flower:
