Winter's Bite

Our little farm is firmly clenched in winter's teeth as we've hunkered down this past week. A mass of arctic air has gripped the center of the country for a while now, and this week it spread east to make us chatter in it's fist as well. Luckily enough for us, we'll climb back into double digits this weekend, but the single digit highs have certainly had us shivering this week.

So, Mike and I are hauling hot water out to the barn three times a day for the rabbits and chickens, and otherwise staying in the house unless shovel duty demands we attend to the driveway.

But, weather like this is perfect for pouring over seed and nursery catalogs, and that is exactly what has been taking up the vast portion of Mike's time of late, as he's researched and studied various permaculture options for our place.
