Do you know where your Thanksgiving Dinner came from?
Did you have pumpkin pie?
This is a pumpkin field in southern Indiana. We also saw a Pumpkin Processing Farm/Plant. Indiana is second only to Illinois in pumpkin production.
Did you have cranberries?
These are cranberries bogs in Wisconsin. They were harvested earlier in the fall. Cranberries are the largest fruit crop in Wisconsin.
Did you have a turkey? Minnesota is the largest turkey producer in the United States.
Sure other states grow pumpkins and cranberries and turkeys..but I like to think that I saw the farms where some of our dinner came from.
I should have taken a photo of a turkey production building..I guess I didn’t realize how important Minnesota was to everyone’s Thanksgiving Dinner.
Instead I will share a greeting card with you..one of my favorite photographs of wild turkeys in a corn field..no we don’t have snow on the ground..but by the end of the day we could have a couple of inches of new snow.
