The unturkey Thanksgiving

One thing about taking time off work is the catching up you have to do when you get back. At least that's my excuse for not posting this previously.

The trip in question was to St. Andrews by the Sea, NB to visit Mike and the organic farming crew. Our delicious, vegan, organic Thanksgiving dinner consisted of wild rice, curried lentils, salad, beans, bread/potato stuffing, squash/carrot soup.We stayed at the beautiful, elegant Algonquin Hotel and golfed at the adjoining golf course with incredible ocean views on a sunny fall day.The crops were finished for the year and Mike and his helper cleared some of the plants. I think these had started life as radishes.We picked rose hips to make jelly, ate chocoate pancakes, fed the donkey, drove to Minister's Island when the tide was out, but the most exciting (apparently) was the arrival of the scythe.Go Mike!
