Pasture Politics

I am not sure what it is, the cold snap we just had, the shorter days, the full moon, sexual maturity, or life, but I have a lot of opinions out in the pasture right now! I might even have a lot of opinions in my house right now, but alas, this is about my…

A Taste of Winter

On October 8th it was 65 degrees and I was picking the last of our apples, amending the soil in my garden beds, and preparing our animals for a coming storm. It dropped to 25 degrees in a matter of two hours, and then the snow came. I love winter so it wasn’t a bad…

I swear he was relaxing in Tahiti last December, because we had pretty much the most ‘non winter’ season I can ever remember. But today, finally, it’s snowing, and snowing, and snowing! Big beautiful heavy flakes. From my…
