Fun in the snow

The thaw came as promised, and made sticky snow out of drifty snow.

(Mainers may not have 1000 words to describe snow, but we do have a lot of adjectives.)

Aimee came back from snowshoeing to her forest tree plots and decided to make a snowman.

She made me help.

Then there was a slight difficulty getting the nose to stay in place.

I had to go out later and stick it back on.

A nose job, for a snowman.

Nip and tuck.

Sheep are quite happy to eat the remainder of a snowman's nose, as long as it is the traditional carrot.

I admit, I love Nellie more than the other sheep, which is why she got the carrot.

But Aimee went out later with other left-over vegetables.

All's well that ends well.

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 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.
