After visiting the grower’s market on Saturday — and safely storing my mushroom and cheese pizza pies and 6 fresh peaches (for $5) in my car — I went to see how Maxine and Max were getting along.
I’m sorry to report that Max is no longer with us. (Yes, it could’ve been Maxine who got the ax, as I can’t tell the difference between the two. But for the purposes of this story, Max is history.) Although Maxine was very quiet, hardly gobbling at all, she was still in fine form, posing for my camera and ruffling her feathers.
The good news is that everyone on the farm enjoyed fresh roasted turkey for their July 4th celebration.
