Happy Thanksgiving! I ended up serving nothing from the garden except one of the butternut squashes, but I did bake my own bread and prepare a good fraction of the dishes, and it was a very nice affair all around.

Three packets of seeds came in the mail today: my order with Seed Savers, feverfew from a trade, and the Winter Sown tomato offer. (She sent more than my six picks. I’m so pleased. And so worried about where I’m going to plant all of these.) The Seed Savers order almost completed our Christmas shopping for the year; one and a half more gifts and we’re done.  I still have seeds to look for in the mail, but they’re all for me. My Thanksgiving cactus is blooming. Welcome, holiday season; I’m ready for you.
