October's sayonara sunrises

October 30:

October 31:

Fiber finishes in October included spinning the last of the Jacob roving:

and washing my skein of mohair to knit for a November challenge:

I picked the remaining zucchini, eggplant, and tomatoes, and most of the mini-peppers:
I also picked a big bunch of kale, but it was so infested with aphids (or some sucking insect) that I couldn't salvage it. Can anyone tell me what to do about that problem? I still have carrots and a few onions in the ground; I thought the seed onions I planted at the beginning of the season had all died, but some are growing now. I'm hoping I'll have some to harvest next spring.

Lance and I enjoyed glorious weather and scenery on our last ride of October:

To close, here is a little snippet from Brian's last violin lesson of October (I can only take video if I hide the camera behind the music stand):

On to November at . . .

I've noticed beautiful sunsets here - usually in my rearview mirror, as I drive across the mountain. Lately, it's been too overcast to see much color. My bugaboo with kale is snails and slugs. I am hoping for some good, frigid weather to freeze the little buggers.

Oops! Meant to ask what you are planning to do with that beautiful mohair...

We're more clouded now, too; no color this morning. Susan, this pattern, with beads just at the ends:
