On the Farm

I'm still trying to find time to read this seed catalog.
New years lull:
Is anyone else having trouble getting in gear  for 2018. So far, every time we start to make some form of progress, the temperature falls to 14 degrees. I'll try to push through and get something done soon, if for no other reason, then so I will have something more interesting than weather to write about here. But tonight its projected to be... you guessed it... 14 degrees. So for the rest of the day we will be preparing the farm (read: water lines) for the cold. Animals are eating more, and staying healthy. They are probably not "comfortable" in 14 degrees, but then again who is. We give them extra hay, extra bedding, and extra feed in this weather. Keeping the water flowing and not breaking pipes is the biggest challenge. 
Thanks for your continued support. We will continue to take care of this place and its animals no matter the weather, as long as there are people that want and need good local food.
