Hey Everyone,

Its Tim Turner again the Manager of the Wampanoag Program here at Plimoth Plantation. I just want to tell you to look for some video Blogs on Thanksgiving comming soon. I will interview one of the Pilgrims in the Village and ask them about Thanksgiving and one of our Wampanoag staff members in the Homesite about Thanksgiving too.

I am also going to give you a tour of our exzibit here at Plimoth Plantation thats is on Thanksgiving too. This exzibit go’s into the History of Thanksgiving and how it became to be the holaday we know today. The exzibit will give you a better understanding of the real Thanksgiving and not the Myth’s that we may know about today.

I look forward to bring this to you soon so Please keep visiting the blog .

Thank You!

Wampanoag Homesite Garden Looking Great!

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to show you how well the garden looks today.  Looks great to me what about you ? make a comment at the end of the blog let me know what you think.  

We planted the corn on the weekend of May 25th and ran in to a little problem, and I mean little ,Chipmunks ate all of the seeds after we went home for the day.  Then the girls planted again, and it rained off and on for the next two weeks, so the seed roted in the ground and they had to plant again. 

This is how the garden looks like after the third planting with some time to grow .  I want to thanks the girls for all of your determination and hard work in the garden nice job !  The corn got a hand high and then they planted beans and squash,water melon,sunflowers and pumpkins too. 

 We have been picking  green corn, green beans and summer squash and using it in our food we cook in the homesite.  There is nothing like eating food you grew and how fresh it tastes mm mm good.

Well let me leave you with some pictures (click on read more of post) then make a comment on this blog by clicking on comment and let me know what you think.

Thanks see ya!
