    Woo hoo! What are you guys going to do? Does anybody host Halloween parties? I remember when I used to drink apple cider, walk on the dead leaves, and look at pumpkins in October around five years ago. :approve: Ahh.

    Yeah right before it got really cold. :devil:

    It is a good day to aerate and over seed my lawn.....The leaves are just starting to change here so it will be a while until we can walk on them.

    I've went to my parents last weekend and collected about 20kgs of apples. The trees were pruned last year so the fruit yield this year has been immense.

    I spent yesterday making apple wine and cider. The cider is fermenting horrendously quickly now, a bubble every second or so, so I've taken it to the garage. I haven't looked at the wine must yet but didn't put any extra sugar in so it should be fine.

    You're jumping the gun there. Halloween comes at the end of October. :biggrin:

    However, we do not do anything special.

    Also, in the S. Hemisphere, it is getting warmer, since it is spring time and Summer is on its way.

    It is my favorit month of the year, right now I'm up visiting friends in Michigans thumb area. Its just beautiful here. Went to a cider mill today and a nice little boat trip to a protected island{native american soil}.
    Almost too much moon to see the stars well tonight, tho its still much more then I can see in the city. Heading back to the camper to bunk down soon, so I can get up early to walk the beaches!

    Talk about timing. Eastern box turtles are supposed to hatch in October. Well, this morning we found two in our back yard - newly hatched and headed for cover. I posted a linked picture in the Gardening thread.

    Or it was until Julius and Augustus Caesar had months named after them.

    It isn't! It hasn't even started yet - south of the equator. :biggrin:

    Indeed :smile: and those living near the equator don't have summer or winter, just wet and dry seasons, in England we call January through to January the wet season :smile:
