First Snow of the Year

but we still have veggies in the greenhouse.
Snow is always a surprise - especially when you get 8 inches all at once! Luckily, we have one and a half greenhouses planted while the third one will be used for the chickens this winter. Those lucky chickens should have a much warmer place to live in the greenhouse rather than the chicken coop. As a bonus, they will have made our greenhouse soil that much more fertile come spring.
We have stopped selling our vegetables commercially (except to the occasional, persistent customer) but it is so nice to have fresh salad, beets, kale, chard, and carrots at hand for our own meals.
