Circle S Farm Delivery/MSFM pick-up TUESDAY, November 25

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

I have been busy today making pumpkin marmalade.  I hope it turns out – I saved a few pumpkins so I could do this for my CSA at Thanksgiving.  I will put it in jars tomorrow – wish me luck.

Farm News:  DELIVERY AND PICK UP THIS WEEK IS ON TUESDAY  – the MAIN STREET MARKET is on TUESDAY this week….so you will have time to use all your precious produce for your Thanksgiving meal!!

We’ve had a quieter week this week.  Curtis hurt his arm fencing – so we have been trying to let him rest it.  Can’t seem to keep him from throwing 5 gallon buckets full of water for the animals over the fence though, during the cold spell!

What’s in the Bucket this week:  Arugula, lettuce, kale, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes and pumpkin marmalade.

I wouldn’t dream of sending this recipe out any other week (Ok, maybe Christmas).  Hence the quote at the top!!
