First Snow

Our first snow was pretty late this year; also very minimal coating. We usually get a pretty good snow by around Halloween. Our last four winters have been pretty intense and I've heard people say last winter was the best powder/ boarding/skiing season ever. So it makes sense we are getting a tame winter. Seems we are starting off winter true to the Farmer's Almanac's prediction of a drier and warmer one. Global warming is a hippie scam. Just pay attention to nature's cycles.

Homegrown Squash Soup

 Very tasty.

Recycling Lumber

Feeding Chickens Out of Dumpsters

This was just one day.

Redesigned Cold Frames

New design is way more passive-solar. Up against the footings of the house the sun's energy is much better utilized.

Look Out Future Generations of Garden Pests!

 This pregnant Praying Mantis had been hanging around our front door for a few days so we relocated her to the 3 Sisters garden area.

Eggs Are Delicious

 We have been eating eggs from our hens. Some days we get one egg and some days four. They are just starting to lay and once we take care of the two roosters things will mellow out a bit.
