Thanksgiving is about the best time of the year. There’s so much to be thankful for and I have a list.
- The sun is at a great angle where nothing is really burning up like it is in the summer – it only looks that way. Thanks.
- I’m grateful to be able to grow, harvest, prepare, and preserve my own food. There are so many needy souls that have no clue how simple it is to live simply AND healthfully for so much less than it takes to live the processed food lifestyle.
I have no clue what this plant is called. Harmony Heavenly Bamboo? If you know please let me know. Thanks to Dorothy for providing the answer.
- Some plants thrive in this garden. Some plants don’t. I curse those that give up and grateful that those are few in number. Thanks for the hardy plants.
- Plans are made but seldom do growing seasons go according to plan. I am grateful that I can be flexible.
- The smell and feel of healthy soil is still one of the best smells I know. I’m grateful to have enough self discipline to not eat the stuff like I did as a kid.
- Thank goodness I can still bend down and work in the garden even though some days it’s very, very questionable.
Red Flame Grapevine.
- There are many that make fun of where I live – Bakersfield (Oildale to be precise.), California. I’m glad I live where I do and thankful that I can appreciate so many things about my home.
- I’m real glad that I’m fortunate enough to have a super, duper camera and am able to capture images of the garden as it progresses. It’s a nice reference tool for me.

- You know what? I’m really glad that I don’t have to post to this blog each and every day. This is a nice thing to have and I’m glad that it’s mostly on my terms. Thanks.
- I’m thankful to the bloggers that are able to maintain a daily post. Those are truly inspired people.
Home grown, fresh picked, newly pickled beets.
- The endurance to survive “swamp pants” season is something to truly be grateful for.
- I am so very grateful that the despicable season known as “swamp pants” is over. I will enjoy this brief respite from perspiration.
- RAIN! Don’t forget to be thankful for the sweet, sweet rain.
Hope everyone will enjoy a great Thanksgiving.
PS – I still haven’t bought a new salad spinner. Stay tuned.
