I’m obsessed, for no good reason, with turkeys today. It’s not that close to Thanksgiving yet. In fact, it’s not even November quite yet and today is Halloween. I should be obsessed with Halloween if I’m going to be on a holiday at the moment. However, we don’t really celebrate Halloween here as the only trick-or-treaters in these here parts are the chickens, and they play tricks and demand treats every day of the year, so what’s new about that? But it’s damp and gray and dreary and my thoughts turn to spring, and spring babies, and maybe I just need something to look forward to this time of year with winter breathing down my back, making threats about arriving early.
I’ve never raised turkeys. How did I miss turkeys? I’ve tried almost everything else! I’m thinking about getting some turkeys in the spring. I think these are pretty. Or I could get a turkey assortment. Or a whole barnyard assortment, because don’t you know I need to try ducks again? No? Sigh. Okay, what about turkeys? Have you raised turkeys? What kind? Turkey tips? Talk turkey to me! Let’s pretend it’s spring.
