What's going on in your (indoor) garden, on your balcony, in your homestead or on your farm this month? Let us take a peek and maybe you'll win one of the prizes.
There's no a whole lot going on in my own garden at the moment. The melon pears are almost ready to be picked (yummie) - I'm so looking forward to that. The cucumber and yardlong bean plants have been removed from the green house. We've harvested our potatoes, and one batch of sweet potatoes. More of these last ones are still waiting in their growing bags. There are some Chayotes left, and a couple of beefsteak tomatoes waited until the last moment to start growing. They're still on the plant, but I'm pretty sure I will need to take them off later this week. The Yacon tubers can stay in the ground until the first frost, but looking at the weather forecast, we'll be able to enjoy them really soon.
It's really about time to start the winter prepping, but on a day like today, when the sun is shining, I don't like the idea of taking down the garden. Unfortunately, now October is coming to an end, I won't be able to postpone it a lot longer.
Meanwhile, I'm wondering what's going on in your gardens, on your balconies, on your farms or in your growing/living rooms.
Welcome to the SteemIt Community Garden Journal Challenge, which encourages you to share your monthly (indoor) garden/balcony updates with your fellow Steemians and create your own garden journal.
A Shoutout To Our Previous Contributors.
We've had different gardeners joining this challenge in every edition. The participants' base follows the seasons in the different parts of the world.

I’d like to thank them all for entering this challenge, and I'd like to invite them to post a new update.
This challenge is open for everyone who is growing plants or crops - indoors or outdoors.
If you haven’t joined before, feel free to start now. The more the merrier! There are plenty of people who are enjoying to see what's going on in other people's garden, farm or balcony.
The rules are still the same:

Please also include a link back to this challenge somewhere in your post.
You can include whatever you want in your post, but please remember that the pictures should be the most important aspect of your post.
Show us how your plants, herbs, flowers, succulents or vegetables are doing. Share what you’ve been doing in your garden, on your farm or on your balcony. Don't forget to let us know if you are dealing with things like fungus, caterpillars, aphids, and - even more important - hów you’re dealing with those.
In short, tell us the story of your garden.
🏆 The Rewards
As always, all entry posts will receive a 100% upvote from my personal account.
As an extra reward, I'll be setting up a @steem-bounty in the comments section. Everyone who posts a comment that includes a link to a valid entry will get a share of that bounty.
🏆 The Winners
When this post reaches payout, I will select the two entries that I liked most.
I’ll reward the top 2 posts with a 3 SBD prize.
I won't be handing out the SBI shares anymore, since SBI appears to be frowned upon in #newsteem.
Prizes will be given out once I get the winners post up, which will be after this post has reached payout. Make sure you submit your entry before that time.
Grab That Camera
Are you still reading? What are you waiting for? Grab that camera and go make some awesome pics of your (indoor) garden, your balcony or wherever you are growing your plants, herbs, flowers or crops.
Show off your green thumb, or the lack of it, and create another chapter in your very own garden journal for 2019.
I'll can't wait to see your updates!
