Harvest time is a time to be thankful

After the storm that dismantled much of my garden a few weeks ago, with a little cleanup and tender loving care, the garden took on another form of beauty.

On Canadian Thanksgiving (October 9) we  had a family and friends dinner/ party at the garden farm ‘Red Barn’.

Everyone brought something, (we brought a turkey). We didn’t spare the sweet and the savory.

A warm fire in the fire pit nearby invited us to come and sit, share stories and enjoy the art of roasting marshmallows.

This is what the day was like…

Leeks can be harvested up until February. We’re looking forward to leek soup this winter.

Am I thankful for my garden or what?
