Thanksgiving Harvest

Historians tell us that out first recorded ‘Thanksgiving feast’ may have included Turkey, it most likely was dominated by Venison(deer meat), water fowl that included swan, ducks and geese as well as lobster, crabs and mussels.

Big Grin… grandson harvested a nice whitetail this past Saturday. I’m guessing it to be a yearling and cutout at about 75 pounds. Just a guess, I didn’t weigh the before or after weights.

Between hunters and state wildlife conservation programs, deer populations are at ‘in recorded’ historical numbers.

All is ready and that fat pig will be processed Wednesday morning.

We had our first ‘hard’ freeze Saturday morning. So gardens are finished. Fall garden clean up will be a high priority to complete before snow or ice storms bring most of my outdoor activity to an end.

For those of you that don’t know. Dressing is made using Corn Bread and flavored with sage. Grin .. if it’s not green with sage it is pig food not people food.
