Open Thread - Thurs 23 Nov 2023 - Thanksgiving!
It's a holiday, whatever its origin, it's a holiday. So, I'm taking it! Husband is making dinner for the family. Go man, GO! We are having chicken instead of turkey. I will be happy. Dessert is pumpkin pie with whipped cream, or maybe the other way around, dunno?
A seasonal picture! Crabapples from a tree we planted about 15 or 20 years ago.
These are french crabapples. I bought the tree, called Evereste, from a local nursery. The crabapples are about an inch across, if that, and DELICIOUS eaten as jelly, jam, juice, chutney... whatever. Our Evereste tree is about 20 years old, and doing great! It produces tons of apples every year after growing beautiful flowers and nice foliage. The birds LOVE the crabapples that we don't eat, the chickens love resting under the tree, the goats would love to eat the tree, if I let them, but I don't!
What's up with you? How's your holiday going? I hope you're having good food and good company! What else is on your mind? Thanks for reading and here's the open thread - and remember, everything is interesting if you dive deep enough, so tell us about where you're diving!
