Today I am thankful for...
~a successful harvest. Earlier in the season, when the groundhogs were climbing the cattle panels, the rabbits were eating the emerging leaves on the ground, and the chipmunks were stealing the 2nd and 3rd round replacement seeds, I was hoping that we would get just one squash or pumpkin. Luckily, we got more than one! We have a little pie pumpkin on the top of every fence post surrounding the garden, ten butternut squash, three red kuri squash, several little mystery green squash, and about ten longneck squash which we have not harvested yet.
~yummy seasonal food. Applesauce Honey cake made in my new bundt pan, purchased in an antique store in Maine. I don't know if it is a true antique, but I think it is beautiful anyway and it made a perfect cake! The applesauce was made from four different types of apples, foraged from roadside trees in Maine.
~the pretty colors still found in the garden. The calendula and marigolds are still going strong and now there are randomly placed red and yellow leaves that land among the flowers.
What are you thankful for today?
