Snow scenes around the farm today

Here's your first Womerlippi Farm winter postcard.

First, Nattick and his ewes in the snow. They don't mind the weather at all.

We finished up with a little more than a foot of snow, not a big deal really, but a decent start.

The propane is restored after Aimee and I took part of the day off. I got to work and got the hot water and cook
stove working again. Aimee had a hot shower this morning -- the water in the hot tank hadn't yet cooled down.

Here's Haggis out for a walk today.

Finally, look at all the whitetail deer tracks under this old apple tree. Before the deer realized we had dogs, they used to wander all around our dooryard and the neighbors, eating the apples. Now the sheep get all the apples that fall on our land, and quite a few of the ones on the neighbors' land, but neighbor Hamilton keeps this tree clear of the long grass just to attract deer.

Lastly, you can see the snowed up barnyard.

Two more papers to grade, put the chickens to bed and I'm done for the day.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at mwomersley@unity.edu if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
