So the turkey I bought for Thanksgiving may have been a bit large. Twenty-five pounds feeds a lot of people or a few people until they hate turkey. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We ate onions, carrots, and parsnips from the Micro Farm. Our squash and potatoes came from local farms. I made an apple pie from local apples and a pumpkin pie from my pie pumpkins. Only the sweet potatoes came from the grocery store. Overall, everything was delicious and we are still enjoying everything. Early in the preparation I thought about taking pictures. Taking pictures never really happened, preparations took over…oh well.
With all the left over turkey I am going to make turkey pies. I like to add carrots, peas, corn, and potatoes in my pot pies. I froze corn and peas earlier this year so I will use those. I still have a few local potatoes left over and they will work well. I picked a few carrots this afternoon.
The ground will be freezing soon. I will be watching temperatures and the ground to make sure I can harvest what I want before it freezes.
I hope you had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.
Enjoy this season, learn from last season, and look forward to next season.
