From November Fields

Since today was Thanksgiving I thought I would show the fall vegetables growing in the field behind our house. Spinach, daikon and onions in the background.



The vegetable stand near our house is still open for business even though today was a holiday. It was Thanksgiving in Japan, too. It was a day of giving thanks to workers. Children had a holiday from school. Most workers, too.

Papa had to work so we had our American Thanksgiving meal yesterday evening. We had ordered a turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and sparkling cider from Foreign Buyer's Club, an import service. I even made a pumpkin pie. Canned pumpkin and evaporated milk can actually be found at some food sections of department stores.
