And do not need to be chilled every winter but here I am looking at another mid west winter and we all know how I feel about those.
It is 33f and frosting outside. The first frost of the season.
A bit like this time last year! But with snow. Though today is the 12th and the snow last year was on the 13th.
So much has changed since this time last year!
Once again I am re-configuring my mornings. The last of the big hogs are sold and leave Monday morning. The 47 chickens are in the freezer. As long as our electricity stays on we are in good shape for the winter. I just need to get in some straw – for some reason I forgot straw!
I work Saturday mornings at The Mill so after that I will be cleaning out the duck house and general tidying up around the property and the house. Preparing for winter.
And I will take some photographs for you.
Now that the chickens are finished I get up and work in the house then walk straight out the door for work. My co-worker is trained to milk and feed the pigs now. This gives me an extra hour for bread making and blog writing in the morning without having to change my clothes twice in the space of that hour.
So, stand by for a pictorial blog tomorrow morning!
I think we are back on an even keel now. There was just too much to do there – for a while.
