I imagine Thanksgiving looks different in each household, each part of the country. In my home, the day is spent at home, cooking, playing, enjoying the simple pleasures of life. While I don’t have much time for the garden today (food assignments gobble up the majority of my day!), I did venture out to check on the sweet potatoes. What Thanksgiving table would be complete without sweet potatoes?
And add this to my list of blessings — my slips have grown into sweets. Varying sizes and shapes, this is what I’ve come to expect from this golden harvest.
On the other hand (more aptly other end of the garden), those sweets leftover from last season and started themselves — proof Mother Nature is quite prolific — have done quite well.
Though when compared to Mother Nature’s batch, I’d say I didn’t do too bad. Good size, nice shape, they’ll all taste the same in the mashed sweet potato dish! More important, it just goes to show, you ALWAYS have time for the garden. Happy Thanksgiving!
