'Tis the Season!

Our family hopes you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I know we certainly ate tons of food! A friend of ours who has a neighboring farm raises turkeys and chicken, along with beef and hogs. He has the best tasting turkeys anywhere! We had dinner at Chuck's parents house, and there were 3 different types of cranberry relish, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts; Chuck & I contributed the brussel sprouts along with a lemon pie and Mom's eggplant salad from the previous recipe. There was also mashed potatoes, stuffing (my favorite), a beautiful dish of butternut squash mixed with cranberries and spinach...so colorful and would make a great side dish for Christmas too. I'll have to get the recipe for you all. Then there were all the desserts! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, the lemon pie, apple pie...I'm stuffed just thinking about it all. Wow! Has it been busy around here. We have a very busy Christmas season here, as our family makes and sells wreaths, garland and kissing balls. We also sell Christmas trees and poinsettias. Jennifer, our daughter, has been a great help in decorating the wreaths and making streamers for the kissing balls while I help with the bows. All our bows are handmade, as the pre-made bows just seem a bit skimpy. Chuck has been on the road daily delivering product to our customers and it has been a great season so far. During this holiday season, it is a nice to reflect on the past year and give thanks for what we have. We are blessed to have a wonderful daughter and loving family. We are grateful for all that is harvested from the farm and for those who help us do so. We look forward to a healthy and safe growing season next year. Thank you to all our customers and farming friends that support us; may you all be blessed with good health and happiness now and in the years to come. It is so nice to see you all as the seasons change! God Bless you all!
