Snow…on Oct 13th?!

Now, we love snow…just not in early or even mid-October. The forecast said it was coming, but it was still a shock to awake to 3 inches of snow on the ground and it still coming down. Makes a farmer think they are way behind, then you remember that it is only early October. We should have some warm fall days for growing and getting ready for winter.

Fortunately, for most of our fall crops the snow is much easier to handle than hail. And the animals have gotten over it…for the most part. Pigs don’t mind, but the chickens had a very quiet morning, trying to avoid stepping in the snow at all costs. The rest of us are looking forward to some sunny fall days and THEN a very snowy winter.
