Baby, it’s cold outside

Her Royal Highness, Princess Paisley Anne Doodlebug, enjoying a warm spot in our cold house.

It is COLD here at Henbogle.  Last night the low was 14°F.  Average temps in November are in the 40s.  Last weekend, it was weirdly warm, in the 60°s.  Now, the deep freeze.  My head is spinning!

I haven’t been in the hoop house yet to see how things are faring in the cold — it is that dark time of year when it is barely light when I leave for work, and dark when I get home.  I’m hoping that the greens in there will survive to become part of our Thanksgiving feast.img_33281

Yesterday was last regular farmer’s market of the season.  Our Thanksgiving Day meal will feature as much Henbogle grown food as i can manage, and the rest will be from Maine –with the exception of Dan’s Ocean Spray Cranberry Hair Gel Sauce.

At the market I bought a stash of root vegetables: turnips, carrots, and parsnips.  I also picked up a loaf of gorgeous bread, a few Baldwin apples, and when I saw these currant tomatoes, well, I snapped up 2 pints.  Aren’t they beautiful?  If you close your eyes and stand close to the oven when you eat them, you can imagine it is summer.

    It sure is cold. We are excited to bring lots of farm raised/grown foods to the table. How did last weekends event go? Did you learn anything about local buying clubs?

    I’m glad to here about your thanksgiving dinner! Buddy and I will be spending it down here in Florida. The Campgrounds provide the turkey and we the people here suppy the rest! It should be fun. And it has been a little cool down here. last 4 days during the day it only got up to about 68′ and down to 40′ something at night. I’m glad we have a furnace in the camper and the house hunt is still on! Love you both Jean
