Farm Notes October 9th

Winter prepping is top priority at the farm.  Busy, busy, busy.  We got a few snowflakes last week, enough to warn us that winter is on it's way.  Every day counts right now and there's lots to do.  Dad pulled the irrigation system from the lake and drained the pipes so we don't have to worry about them freezing.  We'll be moving the hens to their winter quarters soon (picture).  The hay bales are being arranged at the barn for winter feeding.  The goats and pigs will soon partitioned in winter shelters.  The turkeys being kept for Christmas butchering have yet to be moved from the pasture.  The list is long, the days few, the work hard, but we know that it will be accomplished in due time.   "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Galatians 6:9.

Your farmer,

Wow snowflakes already! It is starting to get cold here, but no snow yet. I hope it holds out for you until all of your work is done!

I'm sure glad the temperature is above freezing today, otherwise we'd have a foot of snow by now! It's been raining quite heavily.

Thanks for the comment Graham. I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a note.
