We've had some very cold mornings here on the farm, in the upper 20's. I go out for chores and the ground is frosty and hard and the water source is frozen. This means that I am carrying buckets of water from the house to the animals, three buckets. The animals don't seem to mind this cold. They come out of their shelters every morning in search of their corn scratch and treats.
I don't really have much to say. We have been REALLY busy all week with the festivities of the Nativity so I have gotten out to do farm work very little. I did work on my coop a little on Friday and on Saturday we harvested some firewood. The neighbor downed a big tree he wanted for firewood and in the process downed several smaller trees. He graciously has given these 3-4 smaller trees to us! What a blessing. We just might have enough wood for next winter with those trees and the 2 we lost on our own property.
Happy New Year to you all! I'll have more frequent updates after the New Year!
