Around the Homestead

Early Winter…

Nearby Christmas tree farm
Cooking off turkey stock on our wood cookstove
The fruits of our labor
We left our carrots in our raised beds and seem to be storing well there.
Saving okra seed
Preparing for snow

Dad set a round straw bale in our sheep shed that we rolled out and used in our chicken coop for everyone to nestle down in when the snow came.

The next day

We have had more snow this year than usual which has been really nice.

But everyone stayed warm and dry inside
Yes, it is a baby mole saved from our cats.

We used this experience to learn and read all about moles. There was actually an entire nonfiction book about moles out our local library. Who knew!
