We had a lovely snowstorm during the night and awoke to the most picturesque winter day we have had all season. Plus, it is warm and not windy, so it is fun to be outside in it.
The heavy, wet snow is a foot deep. Rog made a valiant attempt to snowblow a path to get to work, but the snow is totally slush underneath and our little snowblower could not master it. He is working from home today.
I shoveled out the door to the coop- snow had blown high against it - and decided the chickens will stay inside today.I fed the cows, then took a little photography walk with the dogs.
The barn is looking pretty spiffy with the pair of French doors.
Entrance to the pond.
The big rock and the pond. The pond is surrounded by hundreds of daffodils almost ready to bloom. They must be re-thinking that now.
The crabby tree spirit.
Back up to the barns.
I love when the snow blasts the buildings like this.
The sliding barn door is frozen open, so blowing snow blanketed the chicken feed cans inside.
Moji loves the snow, but it sure is exhausting for a short dog to bound through a foot of heavy snow!
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
