Gearing Up for Turkey Day

Halloween and the election are over, which means one thing – Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Have you started your planning yet?  For those of you in the Columbus, Ohio area, check out The Wayward Seed Farm for a Thanksgiving CSA that is sure to put you on the right track for a “local” Thanksgiving.

Wayward Seed Farm, with operations in Marysville and the Cleveland Ohio areas, has put together an “Ohio Farm Fresh Thanksgiving” package complete with a free-range pasture Turkey, a pie pumpkin, pie crust, herbs, and a hefty amount of vegetables for your side dishes including potatoes, leeks, carrots, radishes, turnips, beets, squash, and several types of greens.  To make it even easier, the package comes with recipe ideas so you don’t have to fret about what to do with all those farm fresh veggies.  All you have to do is call the farm to order  (614-327-0102) and pick up your package the Saturday before Thanksgiving at the North Market.  As of yesterday, there are still CSAs available but T-day is quickly approaching, so sign up soon.

If you are not in the Columbus area, check out www.localharvest.org for your own local resources and the 100milediet.org for inspiration.
