|See the tiny bit of orange at the small chicken house? That's Byron letting the Barred Rocks (and their man) out this morning.|
|We novices were concerned as to how the cows would fare during the sudden chill, but they seemed as content as usual today.|
|Happily, they were alive and well.|
|Since we don't want to deplete our wood before, um, Thanksgiving, we're glad it's supposed to warm up again this week.|
|Our friend, Don, was kind enough to load up our truck with a few loads of leaves from his place last weekend.|
|And here they wait for me to spread...though the kids have been enjoying jumping in them!|
|Final harvest: I pulled up the last few basil plants and am drying them out in the barn. I plan to save the seeds to start (hopefully successful) new plantings in the spring.|
How are you getting ready for winter?
