We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in UK like in USA. We do have harvest festival though when we count the blessings of the years harvest and spread a little amongst poor and infirm people. It is not a feast day though! Some folks have harvest suppers incorporating the harvest food. Schools and churches have special services where they collect all manner of fruit, vegetables, bread made from grain etc to distribute. Each child takes an apple or tomatoes or something to school for this occasion. But ours is earlier in the year, usually about late September. Here is a link about it.
Here are some photos of my harvest this year.
This was my first cucumber and lettuce.
Spinach growing in my garden.

I seem to have lost my photo of my scarlet runner beans! Sorry! I also grew some carrots and lots of herbs.
