Early mud season?

I drove to Bangor for a haircut -- there's a very good barber there that is open on Sunday. I left in snotty snow and sleet, but came back in rain. The temperature warmed up to 42 degrees F -- positively tropical, and enough to make a sloppy mess of our dooryard.


Here's the snowbank behind the mailbox, full of road salt and gravel. This will all have to be raked out of the lawn later.

No need for snow boots today. They'd be too warm. I'm glad I don't have to fix a car or a tractor outdoors in this mess, though.


Nellie doesn't care about the mud. Mud and snow are all the same to her, you can't eat them. Green grass is what she likes. She's modeling the latest style for sheep, a scarf made of hay! 

Very fashionable, is our Nell.

We'll see if it freezes up or snows some more this week. The high is forecast for 39 F all through Friday. That's a slow thaw, but a thaw nontheless. 

Maybe we'll see that green grass sooner rather than later.

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.
