It's the second-to-last day of December and we still have no snow on the ground. I harvested this salad from beneath the row cover a couple weeks ago - delicious, nutritious, and a surprisingly successful experiment in winter gardening.
Christmas on the farm was lovely once again; good company, good food, and presents more than made up for the lack of snow. I want to leave the tree up all winter.
The goats enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner of spent grains from neighbor Justin's last brewing.
And, with the help of Justin, Olivier, and Debbie, we got the rafters up on the south side of the barn. We are praying for the snow to hold off a bit longer so we can do the other four, and maybe, just maybe, get that roof on. In the meantime, we are enjoying the view from the hayloft.
Happy New Year, friends of the farm! We hope to see you all in 2012.
